Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also supported this campaign and has also shared a 5-point mantra to be aware by calling on the whole world about the Save Soil campaign.

After reaching Sagar on Thursday afternoon, the Sadhguru left for Bhopal. He has returned to India after traveling to 26 countries on a bike under the Save the Soil campaign.
