Mahatma Gandhi's Champaran Satyagraha to be repackaged as Swachhagraha
08 April 2017 Current Affairs: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to connect the 100th anniversary of Champaran Satyagraha with Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. This initiative attempts to re-envision the theme of the Champaran Satyagraha.

Satyagraha, in this context, will therefore be re-interpreted as Swachhagraha – where an individual shall pool his efforts towards building a clean India.

The event will be kick started by PM Modi who will launch a special digital exhibition at National Archives in New Delhi on April 10.

The digital exhibition titled, “Bapu Ko Karyanjali” will be an attempt to leverage this historic occasion to re-emphasise the spirit of cleanliness – or Swachhta – which was close to Mahatma Gandhi’s heart, and was also a key element of the Champaran movement.
