On the occasion of International Women's Day, March 8, saluting the indomitable spirit, determination & dedication of Nari Shakti, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, "GOI's various initiatives seek to facilitate economic empowerment, self-reliance & social equality as far as Nari Shakti is concerned. Looking forward to addressing a conclave of women Sarpanchs & honouring trailblazers who have worked towards a Swachh Bharat."

Later addressing "Swachh Shakti 2017 – A Convention of Women Sarpanches" at Gandhinagar in Gujarat, he stated that cleanliness is even more important than political freedom while remembering Gandhi ji urging people to maintain the momentum which has been generated towards cleanliness.
