President flags off Swachh Bharat march

New Delhi, Oct 2 (IANS) President Pranab Mukherjee on Sunday flagged off a ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ march marking Mahatma Gandhi’s 147th birth anniversary.

The march was attended by Rashtrapati Bhavan staff and their family members. It was flagged off the President and those present by releasing balloons in the sky.

Addressing the gathering, he said, “Gandhiji’s birthday is most appropriate as he had always emphasized on adoption of cleanliness in our daily lives. Gandhiji said that ‘cleanliness is next to godliness’. He had stressed on the importance of a disease free and clean body.”

He also urged people make their individual contribution toward cleanliness and the Swachh Bharat mission.
