To be healthy, the Prime Minister also stressed on the need for sanitization because "a healthy India is as vital as clean India."

"I believe that healthy India and clean India are related to each other. The country has moved ahead in the health sector with the conventional approach. Earlier, every health-related work was the only responsibility of the Union Health Ministry. But in the current scenario, every department, state governments and other departments are working together for healthy India."
