Is there any link between poor sanitation system and economic disparities in the country? 

Obviously  the answer is yes because  India is a country  with one of the strongest economic  edges and the total  economic  straddles  are concentrated  on the hands of few and thus the majority  Indian  population  can't  even  imagine about  the basic  principles of health care as well as social inclusiveness. Thus it is necessary to implement a system in which, the gap between the poor and the rich should be narrowed and so that it can bring inclusiveness in the social order. Bringing all such stances directly will be impossible due to vast size and large population, the situations for such reforms in economic straddles shall be implemented. When the principle of inclusiveness is considered, it will be just one among the hurdles.

Through grabbing such  measures, tourist  sector can be achieved  with better edges because, the poor conditions of our public places shall be changed and better clean environmental conditions can pull   tourists  here  more  and more. As a report grabbed that the Ganga is unsafe for bathing because of high level of fecal coliform bacteria which costs more than 120 times of the permitted level emanate the seriousness of that.

The advantages of bringing clean India to the future generations are many. Through emanating the basics of sanitation, the basics of inclusiveness shall be prompted. Inclusiveness  refer the minimum requirements  of the citizens  like basic  amenities, which is  necessary  to build  himself  to a well-stocked civilians . Thus sanitation  facilities  can be traced  as the part of social  inclusiveness  through  which,  the government  can assure  the minimum  guarantee  regarding  their health   conditions. Social inclusiveness  shall  be  implemented  with bringing  social  justice and it is possible only  by implementing  a system  in which,  the gap between  poor and rich  should  be narrowed and to provide  directly  all the measures  of  such  inclusiveness  is impracticable  and actually  we need an arena in which,  the growth  of the economic  straddles should  be the part of inclusiveness  directly. Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan is one of the ways to achieve minimum assurance in health conditions.
