Mann ki Baat: PM lauds Bengaluru-based Youth for Parivartan

Bengaluru, Sep 25 (UNI) While urging city mayors and village sarpanches to include local communities and local organisations in efforts like cleanliness, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday showered praise on a Bengaluru team, which has carried out the Swachch Bharat campaign further with an inspiring motto of "Stop Complaining, Start Acting."
"There is a team in Bengaluru - Youth for Parivartan. For the last eight years, this team has been working on cleanliness and other community activities. Their motto is very clear – 'Stop Complaining, Start Acting'," he said in Mann Ki Baat.
This team has so far beautified more than 370 places across the city and connected 100 to 150 citizens at every place, Modi said. "Every Sunday this programme starts in the morning and continues till noon. In this task, not only is the garbage lifted, the work of painting the walls and making artistic sketches is also done," he said.

At many places, sketches of famous people and inspirational quotes by them are seen, Modi said.

The PM also praised the "Kabaad se Jugaad" campaign of Meerut. "This campaign is related to the protection of the environment as well as the beautification of the city. The special thing about this campaign is that, in this, waste such as iron scrap, plastic waste, old tires and drums are used," he said.

This campaign is also an example of how to beautify public places at a low cost, Modi said.
