In an initiative to clean Mumbai, cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar and his son Arjun came together with the leader of the youth wing of the Shiv Sena and President of the Mumbai Divisional Football Association, Aaditya Thackeray to show their support for the Swachhata Hi Seva campaign

MUMBAI: The BJP’s intractable partner the Shiv Sena may be firing frequent salvos at his government, but the party scion and Uddhav Thackeray’s son Aaditya has got a compliment from Prime Minister Narendra Modi for participating in a cleanliness drive in the city.

Modi also appreciated cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar and his son Arjun for participating in ‘Swachhata Hi Seva’ campaign in suburban Bandra.

“I congratulate my young friend @AUThackeray for participating in a cleanliness initiative in Mumbai & adding momentum to #SwachhataHiSeva,” the Prime Minister tweeted.

In another tweet, the PM said, “The continued commitment of @sachin_rt towards a @swachhbharat is deeply appreciable. People across India will be inspired by his efforts. “Happy to see wide scale participation by youngsters, including Arjun in #SwachhataHiSeva. Our Yuva Shakti will make a Swachh Bharat”, he said referring to Tendulkar’s son.

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.

Earlier in the day, Aaditya and Tendulkar participated in ‘Swacchata Abhiyan’ in suburban Bandra.
“An honor to serve our country in the cleanliness drive, alongside @sachin_rt ji before the break of dawn today, at Bandra Fort,” the Yuva Sena president said.

In his tweet, the master blaster said, “Thanks @AUThackeray for joining us this morning. With our youths support, we can not only achieve a swachh bharat but also a swasth bharat!

Tendulkar picked up broom to clean the streets early in the morning to spread the message of cleanliness and extend support to the central government’s ‘Swachhata Hi Seva’ campaign.

The former India batsman said he feels sorry when he sees dirt and garbage destroying the beauty of ‘mother earth’. -PTI
