Clean India Show is very important for our Industry and its Developments - The National drive for improving the cleanliness and sanitation conditions in India indicates that people are finally waking up to the reality that a clean environment is necessary not only for good health but also for increased productivity.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched his nationwide cleanliness campaign, the 'Swachh Bharat Mission' or 'Clean India Campaign' from New Delhi on 2nd Oct. 2014 and addressing the nation at the launch, Modi asked India's 1.25 billion people to join the Mission and promote it to everyone. Prime Minister Modi said, "Today is the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhiji and Lal Bahadur Shastriji. We have gained freedom under the leadership of Gandhiji, but his dream of clean India is still unfulfilled." Gandhiji is watching us and we all must fulfill his dream. We must take efforts to clean our surroundings. Cleanliness is not only the responsibility of the 'safaai kaamgar', it is also the responsibility of 125 crore Indians.
There is a huge potential in the Indian cleaning market and being the first time in Indore, the exhibitors will take advantage of this event. Our Association is very happy with the forthcoming Clean India Show in Indore that will create awareness on the importance of cleanliness & hygiene. Clean India Show is a great platform to create awareness on the various kinds of services that are available in the market today, and to network and expand business interest. We hope that the cleaning industry can make the campaign a grand success and definitely so as Clean India Show is moving in April this year to North Central India which has been witnessing the emergence of many industrial clusters.
Hemant MehtaniPresident Association of Industries Madhya Pradesh
Madhya Pradesh’s biggest industrial areas -- Pithampur, Kheda, SEZ and other areas --house India’s largest automobile, pharma and textile companies. Cleaning is an essential part of any manufacturing facility and we believe that through the forthcoming Clean India Show in Indore, there will be widespread awareness about cleaning technology in this segment.
This is the first time that a cleaning show is being organised at this scale in this city. This initiative by Clean India Journal is a welcome move. All the manufacturing industries should take advantage of this opportunity.
Dr Gautam KothariPresident Pithampur Audhyogik Sangathan
'Cleaning the Heart' is crucial! The cleanliness situation in Central India is not so encouraging. When every other place is filthy, when people are habitual of littering at public places, when no one cares about waste segregation, I hope the Clean India Show and its conference will spread the much needed awareness about cleaning, sanitation and waste management.
Arun Kumar JainPresident MP Laghu Udyog Sangh
The Clean India Show being organised at Indore will definitely benefit the members, as they will come to know about the various cleaning technologies. Cleaning is essential for any manufacturing, especially for the pharma segment. Most of the pharma companies are definitely using cleaning chemicals to a large extent compared to cleaning equipment, as it is inevitable. Smaller companies, with space constraints, would not be in a position to opt for mechanized cleaning. However, I am sure semi-automated small machines would generate interest among the small facilities. Which they will get to see at the Clean India Show.
Dr. S.B.RijhwaniPresident Indian Pharmaceutical Association
Cleaning is the need of the hour, more so in the industrial segment. Clean India Show 2015 will help us get solutions for pollution, which is essential for our industrial zone. We wish the organisers of the Show the very best and we look forward to it.
R.S KharbPresident Govindpura Industries Association
