Now creating Swachh Entrepreneurs : PM Narendra Modi

Taking a step towards the Swachh Bharat campaign, PM Narendra Modi Friday called upon banks to create one lac ‘Swachh Entrepreneurs’ in the period of a year so as to make the Swachh Bharat vision a permanent reality.

In his address on the occasion of the dedication of ICICI’s Digital Village to the nation, Modi ji asked banks to help creating Swachh Entrepreneurs by financing cleanliness and waste management ventures.

While speaking at a function of celebrating 60 years, Modi said, “Can we create Swachhta Entrepreneurs? There is great scope in solid waste management and water treatment.”

PM said banks give funds for infrastructure and they can also give finance to small people to make them entrepreneurs in such sectors. Banks providing support to such entrepreneurs will help make the ‘Swachh Bharat’ dream a big push.

Prime Minister also dedicated an ‘ICICI Digital Village’ to the nation, which has been developed by the country’s largest private sector bank by adopting Akodara village in Gujarat.

He said that the village chosen by ICICI Bank as a digital village has a cattle hostel, which had contributed big to improve incomes and cleanliness in the village.

As per he said, more and more villages across India would adopt this model soon and rural development could emerge as a powerhouse of economic development for the country.
