Kolkata: The Centre's flagship programme "Swachh Bharat Abhiyan" is not new and it has been going on in West Bengal for the last 2-3 years in another name "Nirmal Bangla", according to state Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

"Remember that "Nirmal Bangla" is another name for "Swachh Bharat". This is going on for the last 2-3 years. It is not a recent programme. Many times old things are used in a new way," she said.

Speaking at the "Shiksha Ratna" award ceremony where teachers from the state and 42 schools were awarded, she said there were lot of advertisements and slogans for the "Swachh Bharat" scheme, but three out of four top districts in the scheme were from Bengal.
