New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch a digital exhibition in the national capital on Monday to mark the 100th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi's Champaran Satyagraha.

The PM will also address the gathering after the launch at the National Archives.

The exhibition titled 'Bapu Ko Karyanjali' will not only focus on the Champaran movement, but with this event the government is planning to re-emphasise the importance of cleanliness, which was close to Mahatma Gandhi’s heart and was also a key element of the movement.

With the launch of the exhibition, the government is planning to spread awareness on its flagship Swachh Bharat Abhiyan to deliver on its Clean India promise by the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. In this context, Satyagraha will therefore be re-interpreted as Swachhagraha.

The exhibition will also showcase the milestones covered by Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. A special section has also been set up through which the history of the movement will be told digitally. Another section — 'Swachhagraha - The way forward' — has also been setup at the event.

Sources in the PMO sources said Modi has repeatedly said that the dream of Clean India will be fulfilled only through public participation and mass movement, and that 'bapu ki karyanjali' will move forward this spirit.
