Jaitley terms Swachh Bharat Abhiyan 'most successful scheme' of govt so far 11.1.2020 Central Chronicle
New Delhi, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Saturday said the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is arguably the most successful scheme launched by the Central Government so far. There has, in the past, been a general distrust of government schemes. The principal reason for this is that either the benefits don’t reach the targeted or that the projected parameters are never achieved. However, the Abhiyan is arguably the most successful one, Mr Jaitley wrote in his Facebook blog. When Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the Swachhata campaign in his Independence Day Speech of 2014, some believed that the scheme would be a photo-opportunity with very little progress.

He said, “When the scheme was announced, the rural sanitation coverage of India was 39 per cent. The Prime Minister announced a target that India be made ...
