Prime Minister Narendra Modi promised to lead the cleanliness drive.
Mr. Modi chose Bangalore, a city facing a crisis in dealing with garbage, to announce that he would literally wield the broom and clean the streets of the country of filth and garbage from October 2.
Expressing concern over lack of cleanliness in Union government offices, including the Ministries, he said a cleanliness drive would be taken up in these establishments from September 25, the birth anniversary of Jan Sangh ideologue Pandit Deendayal Upadhayaya, to Gandhi Jayanti.
