PM to visit Kolkata, will meet ailing Swami Atmasthananda

Patna: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Bihar’s Champaran district tomorrow to be a part of the concluding celebration of Centenary of Champaran Satyagraha.

At this event, the Prime Minister will also award ten Swachhagrahis who have performed outstandingly in their villages. Prime Minister Modi will also address 20,000 Swachhagrahis or the Ambassadors of Cleanliness in Motihari on this occasion.

Swachhagrahis are the ‘foot soldiers’ and motivators to implement the Community Approaches to Sanitation (CAS) at the village level. Swachhagrahis are key to driving progress towards achieving an open defecation free nation.

Mahatma Gandhi launched the ChamparanSatyagrah over a century ago, on April 10, 1917 against the Britishers to fight for the rights of farmers who were forced to undertake indigo cultivation.
