New Delhi: On a busy morning, ahead of launching a massive cleanliness campaign, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today made a surprise stop at a police station in the heart of the capital.

Mr Modi cleaned the police station and told the policemen present that cleanliness was important.
He was visiting the Valmiki Basti, a colony that houses sanitation workers, nearby. At the colony too, Mr Modi took a broom and swept the streets.
