'Swachh Bharat' mission has been conducted since 2014 and in its 4th year, it has now become the 'people's campaign', Sonowal said Inaugurating 'Swachhata Hi Seva 2018'.
"Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi had always said where cleanliness exists, Godliness resides. Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi is keen in fulfilling his dreams and is taking all efforts to do it. We should continue to support him and make this campaign successful," he said.
About a water supply scheme which was also inaugurated by Sonowal, Public Health Engineering Minister Rihon Daimari said, 111 piped water supply schemes will be installed simultaneously across Assam under this initiative.

The initiative, named 'Mission 100', was launched taking into consideration the importance of safe drinking water, he said.
