Mumbai, July 2: Salman Khan is sure taking his responsibility as one of the original nine nominees named by the PM in the Swachch Bharat campaign, very seriously. He had declared on Republic Day this year that he would be nominating 100 people every month to assign them the task of picking up the broom and taking an active part in the campaign. And the list is always there at the first day of evey month, like clockwork.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan is not leaving any stone unturned in fulfilling responsibility given to him and has dutifully released a new list of 110 nominees for this month. He posted the list on his Facebook page and asked the participants to mail him their ‘Before and After cleaning pics’. Read: Indian Idol Junior: Salman Khan encourages little talents on the show!
Salman had ellicited praise from Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself for the honest efforts that he is putting into the task of turning people more responsible towards the cleanliness of their own surroundings. The PM had lauded Khan on Twitter after the latter had organized a painting activity where the cast and crew of Bajrangi Bhaijaan had painted houses of the village in Maharshtra where they had been shooting. They were helped in the task by professional painters and had successfully painted each and every house in the village. Previous to that, he had also organized a clean up drive in Karjat.
Salman had announced his plans on Facebook earlier this year. “The Honorable Prime Minister nominated me for the Swachh Bharat campaign and I have cleaned and painted three villages in Maharashtra so far. I intend to continue with this initiative, but Swachh Bharat is not about what one of us can do. It’s about what each of us can do. So today, on Republic Day, I am taking this campaign social. I will nominate 100 followers a month for Swachh Bharat. Please start a sustainable Swachh Bharat initiative in and around your area of work or residence or both. Upload your before and after pictures or videos. Five of the best initiatives will get special mention on my Facebook page and also win a prize each. Kya bolte ho? Shuru karein? First list will be up tomorrow,” Salman had posted on his Facebook page.
