People across India will be inspired by his efforts. “Happy to see wide scale participation by youngsters, including Arjun in #SwachhataHiSeva.

In his response, the junior Thackeray, who heads Yuva Sena, thanked Modi. “Thank you sir. Always an honor to serve our nation. Always count Uddhav ji, me and all of us in with you in such noble initiatives.

“Mumbaikars and BMC (corporators, officers and staffers) have taken the cleanliness movement to a level that will make you proud,” Aaditya said in a tweet.
