If the people of India clean their homes in due course around Diwali every year, why can this attitude not be extended to overall cleanliness and Swacch Bharat, the Prime Minister asked, calling for a change in governance attitude towards hygiene and sanitation. He said the pursuit of cleanliness can be an economic activity, contributing to GDP growth, reduction in healthcare costs, and a source of employment. 

Linking cleanliness to tourism and global interest in India, the Prime Minister said world-class levels of hygiene and cleanliness are required in India's top fifty tourist destinations, to bring about a paradigm shift in India's global perception.

The Prime Minister reiterated his vision of solid waste management and waste water management through the PPP model in 500 towns and cities across India. 

The meeting was attended by Union Ministers Shri Arun Jaitley, Shri Venkaiah Naidu and Shri Nitin Gadkari. Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister, Cabinet Secretary and other senior Government officials were present.
