Swachh Bharat Mission, the cleanliness drive launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014, has made a positive impact in Nagaland. State Public Health Engineering Department, the nodal department of the Swacch Bharat Mission Gramin, has been working in all the 11 districts of the state as the government plans to achieve Open Defecation Free Status before the national target of 2019. 

A ground report from AIR Kohima Correspondent

In Nagaland, the Swachhtta mission has not only benefited the state as a whole but to many BPL families as they were provided with the construction of low-cost toilets. Out of the 2 Lakh 51 thousand rural households in Nagaland, a total of 2 lakh 45 thousand 5 hundred one household toilets have been built so far. Jotsoma village under Kohima District is one among of the 1451 villages in Nagaland where beneficiaries have been benefited from the programme. Lepeviu, a beneficiary from Jotsoma Village told All India Radio, “ My name is Lepeviu. I and my family were having a tough time when we don’t have a toilet in our house. But now with the assistance from the government’s Swachh Bharat programme, I was given free materials to construct my own toilet. I want to thank the government for being so generous towards me by providing all the necessary facilities.”
Neilhovono Peseyie, a beneficiary, who lives with her aged mother, shared how having a toilet has ceased her problem. She said,” My name is Neilhouvono Peseyie, with the help from the government, I have constructed my own household toilet. Earlier I faced a lot of problems but now after having constructed my own toilet it has benefited me in many ways. The government has provided me Komod (squatting plate), CGI sheets, cement and toilet door.”

Making Nagaland a Swachtta is becoming a reality, as young and old are voluntarily coming out from their comfort zone by spreading the awareness of cleanliness to the masses.
