"Being clean and green is not only vital for our health and that of our waterways, flora and fauna, our climate future and the wellbeing of generations to come. Today, on the occasion of World Cleanliness Day, I want to tell that on behalf of India walking in the path of Vishwa Guru, I make the whole world and the people feel the duty to be involved in the virtuous deeds of cleanliness and cleanliness. Having a good idea of cleanliness and hygiene can be the product of a healthy mind.
