Have you ever heard a Prime Minister washing the feet of anyone? This work has been done by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has once again proved his down to earth nature. On 24th February after taking a dip at the Sangam and offering prayers during his visit to Prayagraj in Uttar Pradesh, he did the unexpected.
Yes, India’s Prime Minister not just felicitated Swachha Grahis, fire department personnel, security personnel for their dedicated services in Kumbh Mela but also washed the feet of the sanitation workers.
Sharing the experience of washing the feet, he said “Moments I’ll cherish for my entire life. Honouring remarkable Safai Karamcharis, who have taken the lead when it comes to realising the dream of a Swachh Bharat. I salute each and every person making a contribution towards a Swachh Bharat”.

He added “They work from dawn to dusk but don’t claim to credit or limelight for doing it. We hear about their commendable work back in Delhi”.
Praising the hardwork of the workers who toiled hard to make Kumbh Mela a success, PM Modi said “It was a big responsibility to keep clean an area where 20-22 crore people had gathered. You have proved there is nothing impossible in the world. I salute each and every person making a contribution towards a Swachh Bharat”.
We all know how polluted river Ganga was even though it was the holiest river for the millions of Hindus who take a holy dip in it. But it had to wait for the arrival of PM Modi to get a new life. Speaking on it, PM Modi said “The last time I came here, I had said that the next time I visit Kumbh, it will become a place of spirituality, faith and modernity. I am glad that all of you have turned this into reality”.
Days ago he had won $200000 as a prize amount for securing Seoul Piece Prize but he had allotted the huge amount for the Namami Ganga Mission.
