Gujarat Recognized As a "Har Ghar Jal" State at 100%

On Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised Gujarat for being designated as a “Har Ghar Jal” state in its entirety.
In response to a tweet from Gujarat Minister Rushikesh Patel about the completion of Har Ghar Jal, Prime Minister Modi thanked the state’s residents for their excitement.

Congratulations to the Gujarati people! This demonstrates the populace’s passion for water power, PM Modi tweeted.

“On the auspicious occasion of the New Year, Gujarat was officially recognized as a 100% #HarGharJal state. According to notable figures like prime minister Shri @narendramodi Ji, chief minister Shri @Bhupendrapbjp Ji, and Gujarat Minister Rushikesh Patel, every home in Gujarat now has “Jal.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi declared a 100-day campaign inaugurated by the Union Minister of Jal Shakti, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, on October 2, 2020, to safeguard the health and well-being of children by supplying clean tap water in schools and Anganwadi centers across the nation.

The Jal Jeevan Mission works to improve mothers’ and sisters’ socioeconomic status, health, and liberation from the age-old labor of collecting water for homes. The Mission is to give rural households greater comfort of living, pride, and dignity.

In 16 months, potable tap water has been made available to 8.47 lakh schools (82%) and 8.67 lakh Anganwadi centers (78%), allowing for the preparation of midday meals, handwashing, and toilet usage. In schools across the nation, 93 thousand rainwater collecting facilities and 1.08 lakh greywater reuse structures have been constructed.
In contrast to prior water supply programs, the government claims that Jal Jeevan Mission places more emphasis on providing water services than merely constructing water supply infrastructure. According to the Jal Jeevan Mission’s philosophy, “no one is left out,” every home, regardless of socioeconomic position, is provided with tap water.
