New Delhi: The Bollywood fraternity on Monday come in unison to pay tributes to ‘Father of Nation’ Mahatma Gandhi on his 148th birth anniversary. They also took the opportunity to laud the cleanliness drives organised by the Indian Government to promote ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’.
‘Cleanliness is Godliness’ had been the mantra of Mahatma Gandhi’s life. Gandhiji, in his lifetime, demonstrated, propagated and insisted for individual and community cleanliness. Following his footsteps, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Government launched ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ on October 2, 2014 with a vision of achieving ‘Clean India’ by 2019. And the drive completes its three years today.
Veteran actor Anupam Kher shared a video on Twitter, in which the actor is seen helping the cleaning crew to pick up the garbage from the street. He even urges fans to follow the suit. The 62-year-old captioned the video, “On Gandhi Jayanti Sharing few videos with you all for #SwachhataHiSeva campaign by Prime Minister @narendramodi. 1st Video is what I saw!!”
Here’s what the other stars shared on the social media:
