Our Primi Minister, Sri Narendra Modi, has set a deadline to fulfil Gandhiji’s vision of Clean India, which is by Gandhiji’s 150th birth anniversary in 2019. As citizens of India, it is our responsibility to help fulfil this vision. So, there is an immense need to give more importance to the sanitation and hygiene of our surroundings and so to care for the scavengers.
Mahatma Gandhi's 150th birth anniversary is on October 2nd, 2019. So, before that date, the govt of India is planning to bring the 'clean India' campaign to an end by achieving its objectives.(cleaning is not going to end, but the campaign would). So, Can I use 'by' the deadline?
The objective of the third sentence is to tell that care for the scavengers is as equally important as the 'clean India' campaign. I want to know if my usage of the highlighted 'so' in the sentence is correct.
