Modi picks up litter on Mahabalipuram beach

Have you ever seen a country’s premier picking trash from the roadside?  Yes. He is none other than the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is known for his simplicity and down to earth personality and who made Swachh Bharath a great success.


It was Narendra Modi who posted a video picking plastic waste and other waste found thrown on the Mahabalipuram beach early this morning on his Twitter account. Modi during his morning walk on the beach found the litter on the beach and without any hesitation he started picking all the trash and handed over to the hotel staff where he was staying.

He tweeted that: Plogging at a beach in Mamallapuram this morning. It lasted for over 30 minutes. Also handed over my ‘collection’ to Jeyaraj, who is a part of the hotel staff. Let us ensure our public places are clean and tidy! Let us also ensure we remain fit and healthy.

The tweet went viral on social media. Over 6 lakh people watched it.
