In sharp contrast to politicians posing for cameras with brooms at intentionally littered places, a video that is being widely shared online, shows Puducherry CM V Narayanasamy stepping into a drain barefoot and cleaning the waste.
The video was posted by the Chief Minster’s official Twitter account.
The activity was a part of the ‘Swachhata Hi Seva’ movement launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi which came to a close on 2 October 2018 and Narayanasamy spent around 10 minutes clearing a drain near the Nellithope signal.
Narayanasamy Ji, kudos to you for leading from the front and inspiring others to strengthen the movement to clean India. https://t.co/z4Tdhu31eU— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) October 2, 2018
The video soon went viral on social media, and received a lot of positive response from people. Some also called him a role model.
Well done! This called lead from front and not for camera. Respect 🙏🇮🇳 https://t.co/TPQFPNdqDp— Tarique (@tarique_20) October 2, 2018
