BJP MP Pratap Simha was among the first to notice Mr Jain's tweet
Kudos... https://t.co/0vPMbIxkld— Pratap Simha (@mepratap) April 1, 2017
Within two days, PM Modi retweeted it and began following Mr Jain on Twitter.
Tweets do come true! Never thought that this will happen in real :) Honoured to be followed back by Modiji. https://t.co/xp5kKrwgEl— Akash Jain (@akash207) April 2, 2017
When people asked Mr Jain why his family had decided to print the Swachh Bharat logo on the wedding cards, he explained his father had wanted the "social function to be a medium to spread a social message."
@AnnyaDasGupta33 Yes, wanted this social function to be a medium to spread social message.— Akash Jain (@akash207) April 2, 2017
A few tweeple pointed out that perhaps sending out e-invites to the wedding might have done more to promote the campaign.
@gautyou Completely agree. Since not all the relatives are online, about 40% invitations are physical and rest 60% will be Whatsapp based :)— Akash Jain (@akash207) April 2, 2017
One person even suggested a "plastic-free" wedding
And another asked Mr Jain to post pictures of the April 29 wedding to prove the family and their guests would do their part to ensure the idea of a "Clean India" was actually implemented
Mr Jain's Twitter timeline has been filled with congratulatory messages for the innovative idea
@AsYouNotWish Thanks a lot. Exactly, it's the drops and drops which fill up the ocean.— Akash Jain (@akash207) April 1, 2017
PM Modi kicked off the Swachh Bharat campaign on October 2, 2014 on the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. He famously swept a narrow street in a North Delhi neighbourhood, tapped celebrities to join in the cause and led thousands of government employees and school children in taking a pledge to focus on cleaning the country.
