NIPER-A celebrating Swachhta Pakhwada during 16th to 31st August 2017

Swachhta Pledge

Mahatma Gandhi dreamt of an India which was not only free but also clean and developed

Mahatma Gandhi secured freedom for Mother India

Now it is our duty to serve Mother India by keeping the country neat and clean

I take this pledge that i will remain committed towards cleanliness and devote time for this

I will devote 100 hours per year that is two hours per week to voluntary work for cleanliness

I will neither litter nor let others litter

I will initiate the quest for cleanliness with myself, my family, my locality, my village and my work place.

I believe that the countries of the world that appear clean are so because their citizens don’t indulge in littering nor do they allow it to happen

With this firm belief, I will propagate the message of Swachh Bharat Mission in villages and towns.

I will encourage 100 other persons to take this pledge which i am taking today.

I will endeavor to make them devote their 100 hours for cleanliness.

I am confident that every step I take towards cleanliness will help in making my country clean.
