Amitabh Bachchan sweeps with Devendra Fadnavis
Driving the Swach Bharat campaign forward, megastar Amitabh Bachchan was snapped sweeping with Maharastra CM Devendra Fadnavis. The CM of Maharastra anounced that by October 2nd, 50 cities in Maharashtra will be swachh or clean cities. Amitabh Bachchan was seen picking up garbage and brooming around.
On a rainy morning, students and volunteers joined Devendra Fadnavis to clean Mumbai’s JJ hospital and the area around it.
“Maharashtra plans to have the highest number of Swachh cities,” vowed the chief minister. Big B picked up the broom to start the mission.
The chief minister also informed that soon Maharashtra will lead the way in solid waste management. “We will process every bit of garbage,” he said.
“We hope this movement continues and we can keep our cities clean,” said mega star Amitabh Bachchan. He congratulated Maharashtra on “becoming an example for India.”
Mr Fadnavis stressed on and invited public for building toilets. “If we don’t involve people in the construction of toilets, it doesn’t fulfill the purpose. It becomes a storage space,” he said.
“We are not here to give speeches. We are here to become examples and hope this movement continues, and we can keep our cities clean,” Mr Bachchan said at the event. “If everyone cleans up 10 yards around their home, the entire city will sparkle", Big B added.
