In a fitting remembrance on the International Women’s Day, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi recalled and paid tribute to the Kunwar Bai of Chhattisgarh.
She had become the mascot for the ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ in 2016 after she raised funds to build toilets in her village by selling her goats.
PM Modi remembered her contribution to the government’s clean India mission and also fondly reminisced about the time when he had met her in Chhattisgarh.
On Thursday, he tweeted, “I will always cherish the time when I had the opportunity to seek Kunwar Bai’s blessings during one of my visits to Chhattisgarh. Kunwar Bai lives on in the hearts and minds of all those who are passionate towards fulfilling Bapu’s dream of a clean India.”
