PM Modi took part in the drive along with fitness influencer Ankit Baiyanpuriya
Prime Minister Narendra Modi led from the front as thousands of people across the country participated in an hour-long cleanliness drive today ahead of Gandhi Jayanti.
PM Modi took part in the drive along with fitness influencer Ankit Baiyanpuriya, getting fitness and well-being into the mix too.
Sharing the video on his official X account, PM Modi wrote, "Today, as the nation focuses on Swachhata, Ankit Baiyanpuriya and I did the same! Beyond just cleanliness, we blended fitness and well-being also into the mix. It is all about that Swachh and Swasth Bharat vibe."
Besides PM Modi, several other BJP leaders, including Union ministers, took up cleanliness programmes in different parts of the country.
Home Minister Amit Shah participated in Ahmedabad while BJP chief JP Nadda did so in Delhi.
In a recent episode of "Mann Ki Baat", PM Modi had appealed for "one hour of shramdaan for swachhata" on October 1 by all citizens and said it would be a "Swachhanjali" to Mahatma Gandhi on the eve of his birth anniversary.
Cricketers such as Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma also appealed to the people to come together for "Ek Tareekh, Ek Ghanta, Ek Saath" and join the largest citizen-led movement to strengthen the resolve towards cleanliness.
