States make headway in COVID-appropriate behaviour campaign
Numerous IEC activities marked Week 1 of the COVID 19-appropriate behaviour campaign that was launched by the Prime Minister of India on 8th October 2020. The activities were in keeping with those suggested by the Department of Drinking Water and Sanitation and to be carried out between October and December 2020.
Launched in April 2016, this is an initiative under the Swachh Bharat Mission. Swachhata Pakhwada is inspired by the Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi's vision to engage all Union Ministries and Departments in Swachhata-related activities, thereby making Swachhata "everyone's business".
