The University Grant commission asked 900 universities and 40,000 colleges to gather and spread the copies of a new book written on SWACHH BHARAT MISSION among the students. It is said the PM Narendra Modi has written a foreword for it.

Rajnish Jain, Commission Secretary has written to the Vice-chancellors of all the universities seeking a wider circulation of THE SWACHH BHARAT REVOLUTION, a collection of essays compiled by the Ministry of Jal shakti. According to Mr Jain, This movement is people’s movement.

He added that this book contains information and chapters about how various sectors contributed to this mission. He requested all the higher educational institutes and their affiliation to collect and distribute maximum copies of this book which is published by Harper Collins India, among the students.

Rajesh Jha, Executive Council Member of Delhi University opposed this request and said it will be like promoting a particular government’s propaganda which can put a bad impact on students. He added that promoting and declaring any mission as a success without applying any scientific research is counted as propaganda.

He said that now This mission completed its 5 years and now a proper assessment can be made to understand its impact and the result. He questioned that “if the book is relevant for the student, then the University will and should decide on its own so why top authorities are imposing it on the universities and colleges?”

A Delhi University professor also questioned why everything should be handed down from the top pointing to the regulator’s growing behaviour to send advisories to the universities on the matter that should be outside its province.

Department of drinking water and sanitation’s  Secretary Mr Parameswaran Iyer who edited this book said that this book consists of the essays which are written by Late Arun Jaitley, Ratan Tata and Amitabh Bachhan. He added that the Swachh Bharat mission is one of its types and nothing like this has never happened, considering the way it became a People’s mission and making people aware of basic sanitation.

In defend of Commission’s decision, R.P Tiwari, Vice-chancellor of Dr Harising Gour University, Madhya Pradesh said that cleanliness is a very important issue, and people and students should have the knowledge regarding this mission. He confirmed that Dr Harising Gour University, Madhya Pradesh will buy 10 copies of this book. He also criticized the regulator’s advisory by saying that we should be proud of our PM Modi that he took a decision on a public issue and is thinking ahead of us.
