Inspired by these words, the Hon'ble Prime Minister of India gave a clarion call to the Nation to fight filth and open defacation, change old habits and achieve a Swachh Bharat by 2019, to mark the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

As a part of this camapign Swachhta-Hi-Sewa Pakhwara has begun today on Konkan Railway  with a Swachhta Pledge by Konkan Railway Employees with a view to raise awareness amongst the employees and their families to inculcate the habit of cleanliness in their routine life and work place.
