New Delhi : A volunteer group in Delhi called `We Mean To Clean' planted 600 ecologically valuable trees in Delhi on September 17, 2017. Earlier, they transformed a slum in Kirti Nagar, Delhi. The people are responding to the`Swachhata Hi Seva’ campaign. The participation of many such organisations run by common people  in the campaign is the feature of the overall Swachh Bharat programme – citizens becoming inspiring leaders, owning the movement and run it.

Enthusiastic cleanliness initiatives among the people have become a feature ever since PM Narendra Modi launched the Swachh Bharat initiative. Lending further impetus towards a cleaner India, PM Narendra Modi had appealed to the nation during his recent Mann Ki Baat address to dedicate the last few weeks of September towards `Swachhata Hi Seva’, an initiative to pay a real tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on Gandhi Jayanti, according to a PIB release.

On September 15, 2017, President Ram Nath Kovind had launched the Swachhata Hi Seva movement in Uttar Pradesh from a village in Kanpur.  However, on the birthday of PM Modi on September 17, it took a higher trajectory.
