Shashi Tharoor too showed support for the campaign and even praised Modi for the same. However Kerala Congress hit out at him and criticised him for doing so. Later on Tharoor said that he was only supporting the campaign and was not 'endorsing the BJP's ideals.'
Modi launched the 'Swachh Bharat' campaign on Oct 2 and has already found many celebrities and politicians supporting the campaign.
