Katni (Madhya Pradesh): A 13-year-old boy in Madhya Pradesh has been named 'Swachhta' ambassador for the Katni district after the Collector was impressed by his letter.

Ashutosh Manke, a student of ninth standard at CM Rise Model School, sent a postcard on cleanliness, giving his suggestions for the maintenance of garbage carts and general cleanliness.

After reading it, Collector Avi Prasad was very impressed and called Ashutosh to his office. He made him the brand ambassador for the 'Swachh Bharat Mission' in Katni.

Manke said he was very happy after the announcement while his sister, Ayushi Manke, said they didn't expect the Collector will respond to her brother's postcard so soon.
