After Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, the Delhi BJP leaders have been given directions to submit a daily report to show that the PM’s Clean India project is being implemented in the capital.

In a meeting on Saturday that saw attendance of Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan, Delhi in-charge Prabhat Jha and  Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay, leaders from the smallest unit of the party to the highest were asked to pull up their socks and start working to ensure a cleaner Delhi.

All mandal presidents, councillors, MLAs and MPs were called in to emphasise the imminent need to implement the project.

“Directions have come straight from the PM and we have to ensure that those who have become complacent in their respective roles are made to deliver. They need to work to make good the promises made by the PM. The BJP will be out on the roads to ensure that residents get a clean Delhi to live in,” a senior BJP leader said.

The party has issued a report register to all its 278 mandal presidents to record and report on ward-wise sanitation work being undertaken on a daily basis. It also issued guidelines to all its MPs, MLAs, councillors, district and mandal presidents to ensure their participation in Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

“All councillors have been instructed to ensure that the safai karamcharis in their respective wards perform their duty. Random checks will be carried out and the primary focus will be on educating people to not litter,” the senior leader said.
