The Clean India Movement that the PM started when he came into power has successfully etched itself in the minds of the people, for positive reasons, of course. The swachh Bharat movement was the cornerstone of the political agenda of Narendra Modi during the elections. The ‘abhiyan’, as the BJP leaders call it, saw a lot of high profile personalities of the country become a part of it; some even came out on roads with a broom to show their support for the movement and for the PM.
The recent addition to that lot is the Master Blaster, Sachin Tendulkar, himself. He urged the people of the country to see the bigger picture and work for making the cities and surrounding cleaner to not just make everything look beautiful but to also open doors to an improved, healthy lifestyle.
Nirmal Singh Lotus Green told us that Sachin has been tweeting for a while in support of the movement but this was the first time he came out and talked to people about the importance of the movement and why more people should be a part of it.
On Monday, Sachin came out on the streets of Bandra’s suburbs in the morning to talk to people about the initiative and to show his support for the work the central government of the country has been doing.
Sachin said ‘The garbage is all over the city. People throw their wastes wherever they want to but this is not good for the environment and we need to understand this. I would request people of my city to not litter openly’.
While talking to Nirmal Singh Lotus Green, he implied that he feels really sorry for the way people are defacing the earth. He urged people to take the Swachh Bharat Mission seriously and to see the city as their home.
