On the day when Swacchata Abhiyaan was observed around the country, the Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanasamy took a step inside a drain and used a spade to clean it.
The video has gone viral is is being shared on all online social media platforms.
The video, posted by the Chief Minister’s official Twitter account, is part of the ‘Swachhata Hi Seva’ movement launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The video of the Congress leader, in white clothes and his dhoti hitched up, extracting muck from a dark drain.
This is in sharp contrast as many politicians are seen cleaning the already cleaned up spots or just do it for the cameras.
Swachhata Hi Seva movement was launched by PM Modi for generating greater public participation towards cleanliness to mark the commencement of the 150th birth anniversary celebrations of Mahatma Gandhi next year.>
