Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched the “Swachhata Hi Seva” campaign, urging people to rededicate themselves in realising the dream of a cleaner India. The PM joined a group of students of Baba Sahib Ambedkar Higher Secondary School in Delhi’s Paharganj area and picked up a broom to initiate the cleanliness drive.

In a video, released by news agency ANI, the leader was seen sweeping the campus of the school, and when the broom couldn’t remove the trash caught in the grass and creepers, he picked it up himself with his hands.

The ‘Swachhata Hi Seva’ movement aims at generating greater public participation towards cleanliness and is being organised in the run-up to the fourth anniversary of the Swachh Bharat Mission on October 2, 2018, which will also mark the commencement of the 150th birth anniversary celebrations of Mahatma Gandhi.

In a nearly-two-hour video interaction, PM Modi spoke with people from across the country, including faith leaders, Uttar Pradesh Chief minister Yogi Adityanath and noted personalities such as Amitabh Bachchan and Ratan Tata, who shared details of their work for the campaign. He also interacted with Indo-Tibetan Border Police personnel involved in cleaning Pangong Lake and its surroundings in Leh.
