President of India
The President said that “Swachh Bharat Ambassadors have a huge potential to influence public to adopt safe sanitation practices and integrate them into their daily lives. An Ambassador does not only encourage his/her followers to imbibe the spirit of a Clean India but also motivates them to become Swachh Bharat Ambassadors themselves, making this mission a true form of ‘Jan Andolan’. The role of Ambassadors is not only to create awareness and motivate citizens, but also to join hands on-ground and participate in mission activities.”
