Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently took a morning walk along the Mahabalipuram Beach, Chennai and did plogging to bring together Swachh Bharat and Fit India (cleanliness and fitness). Just after PM shared the video of his picking up garbage, including plastic bottles and wrappers, several Bollywood celebrities including Akshay Kumar, Karan Johar, Anupam Kher and Vivek Oberoi have spoken about the leader and the act of kindness and humility.

“Keeping our surroundings clean is not just limited to our houses. It’s about keeping our home, #India clean & safe. Cleanliness is definitely very essential for remaining happy, healthy & fit. We all need to work towards reducing the ‘collection’. @narendramodi”, tweets Anil Kapoor.

Akshay Kumar called him the best leader and tweeted, “Hon. Prime Minister @narendramodi ji, the best leaders are those who lead with an example! Also it is such a great activity to stay fit and at the same time keeping our public places clean.”

Karan Johar praised Modi for linking fitness and cleanliness, “This is the perfect communication Honourable Prime Minister sir! @narendramodi Your initiative will ensure we have accountability to our public places and keep the sanity levels high! A Clean India! A Fit India! That’s the mantra!”
