15 kilometer long human chain
CR Patil said that PM Modi had come to Surat recently. To mark his arrival, we set a target of complete cleanliness and therefore cleaned every street of the city. A large number of government and Municipal Corporation officers, employees, BJP functionaries and children participated in the cleanliness drive. Later, about 25-thousand children formed a 15-kilometer long human chain to create awareness about cleanliness among the common people. 

A large number of people came forward for the drive
Patil said that there are 360 villages in our area of Navsari district. Almost all the officers, employees, sarpanches and common people participated in this special campaign with about 45 JCBs, 35 garbage vans, tractors and other equipments to clean the entire area.

360 villages will soon be completely clean
The Navsari MP said that till now we have completely cleaned 80 villages of our area. There is no garbage anywhere in these villages.  Special arrangements have been made for disposal of garbage. Within the next 20-25 days, all 360 villages will be completely cleaned.

Special action plan for all the districts of Gujarat
BJP State President, in response to a question from Dynamite News, said that as the state President, he wants that every village in all the districts of Gujarat should be cleaned in the same manner. For this we have prepared a special plan. All districts have been informed. The action plan has also been shared.

Public involvement is success guarantee of every scheme
In response to a question from Dynamite News, Patil said that if the public joins together, then the success of every plan is ensured. Everyone likes cleanliness. This should become a habit. PM Modi also says that cleanliness must be there but it should be done every day and continuously. Common people are joining our campaign. Most of the youths and students have also been associated with it. Therefore it will be successful in the entire Gujarat.

Committee ensures cleanliness in village
Regarding his action plan, CR Patil said that after cleanliness, we form a committee in the village and ensure that cleanliness is always maintained there.
