The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, performed Shramdaan on Saturday for the construction of a twin pit toilet at Shahanshahpur village in Varanasi.
He interacted with the people, who have resolved to make the village open-defecation-free and appreciated their initiative of naming the toilet “Izzat Ghar.”
The Prime Minister said that the feeling of “cleanliness being our responsibility” needs to be inculcated among all.
He said this would go a long way towards ensuring wellness, and protecting the health of the poor. Modi said Swachhta is like a prayer for him, and cleanliness is a way to serve the poor.
Addressing some people on the occasion, Modi congratulated the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath, and the State Government, for the setting up of the Pashudhan Arogya Mela.
He said this is a new effort which would benefit the animal husbandry sector in the State.
