Anushka Sharma is not alone in her Swachh efforts, other B-town celebrities like Rajinikanth, Anil Kappor, Riteish Deshmukh and Baahubali actor Prabhas, among several other well known personalities like Sachin Tendulkar have come aboard Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Swachhata Hi Seva mission in order to spread the message of cleanliness.
Apart from celebrities, Government’s ongoing Swachhata Hi Seva campaign has brought people from different walks of life together to fight against the evils of open defecation, garbage dumping and littering. During the 15-day campaign India crossed another Swachh landmark, and crossed 200 districts that are free from age-old practice of open defecation. The Swachhata Hi Seva campaign will hit its culminate on October 2, when many states, districts, villages are set to be declared 100% open defecation free.
