"It was a young boy vis-a-vis an enormous task at hand. But his grit and determination were exponentially greater and mightier," PM Modi talked about the eight year old who is speech impaired, but used a whistle as an armament.
Tushar would wake up at 5 in the morning, visit households from his locality one by one, awaken them and used gesticulations to wean them away from Open defecation.
This boy transformed the village into Open defecation free covering 30 to 40 homes everyday, spreading the message of cleanliness.
Prime Minister in his Mann Ki Baat address said, by promoting the virtues of cleanliness, this little lad has done inspiring work.
"This proves that cleanliness suffers from no barriers of age; there are no boundaries. A child or an elderly person, a woman or a man, everyone needs cleanliness. And everyone should contribute towards the cause of cleanliness.
"Our Divyang brothers and sisters are firm in their resolve; they are competent, capable, courageous and determined," PM Modi said.
