While speaking at the #SwachhIndia Cleanathon, singer Jasbir Jassi stated that swachhta begins from home. "My mother got awarded three times for cleanliness. She used to clean the drains in the society by herself, explaining that drains won’t flow properly if we won't clean it," stated the singer while explaining how he learned his cleanliness lesson from his mother. "People should be motivated to keep their surroundings clean. Our basics about cleanliness are not clear. We need honest and worthy officials to educate people on keeping the surroundings clean," the singer added.
