PIB
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday interacted with the recipients of the Nari Shakti Puraskar in New Delhi and congratulated them for their achievements. 

He said their work is an inspiration for others and exhorted them to go even further in their respective fields. 

Referring to the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, the Prime Minister said that its success is attributable in large measure to the fact that women have given importance to it.

Mentioning the recently concluded Kumbh Mela in Prayagraj, the Prime Minister said that this time, it has been the subject of discussion, because of the high standards of cleanliness and sanitation. 

He added that Swachhta has now become a public movement. 

The Prime Minister said that the next step in the Swachhta movement should be the conversion of waste to wealth.

According to an official release, the Prime Minister also touched upon the issues of tackling malnutrition and vaccinations for children through Mission Indradhanush. 

He said that in both these areas, women have a key role to play in ensuring success.

Minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi was also present on the occasion.
