Sachin Tendulkar joins Swachh Bharat campaign
New Delhi, Oct 06: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday applauded cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar after the latter accepted the PM's nomination as one of the 'ambassadors' of 'Swachh Bharat' campaign and took part in a cleanliness drive in a locality in Mumbai.

"I congratulate @sachin_rt (Sachin Tendulkar) for his efforts. Together we will make Swachh Bharat Mission a success," tweeted Prime Minister Modi.

Sachin on Sunday posted a video in which he was seen sweeping a road in Mumbai with a broom in hand.

Tendulkar, who is a Rajya Sabha member, was one of the nine celebrities nominated by the Prime Minister to spread awareness on cleanliness when he kicked off his ambitious campaign on October 2 on the 145th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

"I have been entrusted the leadership role of 'Swachh Bharat' campaign by Shri Narendra Modi. So, I am here along with my team and will clean this area," Tendulkar said, while taking part in cleaning up the road with some youngsters.

"When all of us, including my friends got the information that I have received the leadership role, all my friends came together and said we will also lend our hand towards cleanliness and will try and keep India as clean as possible," said Tendulkar.

"This is the start and we can move forward from here by doing better work. So, we are a team and we will try to work with all our heart to our part well," he said.
