Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his office on Wednesday, announced that he has donated Rs 21 lakh from his personal savings to the corpus fund for the welfare of sanitation workers of Kumbh Mela.
Last month PM Modi dip at the Sangam in Prayagraj for the Kumbh Mela. In his last visit, he had acknowledged the ‘safai karamcharis’ for the efforts to keep the grounds clean. It is such a challenging task to keep the ground clean when millions of devotees come to take a dip at the Kumbh Mela.
Quoting the sanitation workers, PM Modi had said “these safai karamcharis were my brothers and sisters who were waking up early, sleeping late, all to ensure the cleanliness of the area. They did not want any praise but they were doing their jobs without any fuss.”
Here sharing a number of tweets of the PM donating money, the Prime Minister’s Office tweeted, “this is just the latest in the series of such steps taken by Modi.”
