Dear teachers and students, today my speech is about swachh Bharat Abhiyan, which is a signature campaign of the government to make people aware of keeping the surroundings clean and hygienic.
But, not only for the sake of government policies, we should instead modify our way of living and include the good habit of keeping the area clean for the betterment of our own lives and those sharing the society with us. It should be our moral sense of responsibility to not litter the areas and keep ourselves healthy.
I would like to call upon all the teachers sitting here that students in the school should be taught about the practices they must follow at home, school and other public places as well.
- Do not throw garbage on the roads or railway tracks. Dustbins should be installed in the school premises. Students should be encouraged to initiate the installment of dustbins in the societies or neighbouring areas, in case they are not present. While we are travelling and do not have access to dustbins, we should not throw the empty packets or bottles on the streets, instead should keep them with us and throw them after a journey in dustbins only.
- Awareness to be spread about not spitting on the walls, streets or any public places.
- The drains and sewage lines should be properly covered and a regular spray of disinfectants should be done.
- There must be proper sewage disposal systems in place to keep a check on rising garbage menace across the city.
Friends, do you know the consequences of not keeping your surroundings clean? The unhygienic and dirty surroundings may lead to the spread of various germs and viruses, which may pose a health risk to you and your family. The clean cities not only increase the aesthetic value but also looks attractive and help us keeping ourselves fit and safe from health hazards. The swachh Bharat Abhiyan also aims at spreading such awareness among the citizens of the nation, and everyone should follow the basic unwritten rules.
Through my speech, I had tried to contribute for this good cause and hope that you will do the same by transmitting the knowledge further to your friends and relatives.
