New Delhi, Oct 16: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today hailed tennis star Sania Mirza for joining the 'Swachh Bharat' campaign, saying it will go a long way in spreading awareness about the issue.

He said other sportspersons, including shooter Anjali Bhagwat, would also be joining the campaign. "A commendable effort by @MirzaSania! Her efforts towards a Swachh Bharat will go a long way in spreading awareness on the issue," Modi tweeted.
