Earlier this week, Modi had written personalised letters to celebrities, industrialists and noted personalities like Prabhas, Mohanlal, SS Rajamouli and Mammootty among others to enlist their support for the initiative. Quoting Mahatma Gandhi, PM Modi said Swachhata is for each of us to practice. He also said the days leading up to Gandhi Jayanti on October 2 be about “encouraging widespread participation in cleanliness initiatives across the country.”
Baahubali director SS Rajamouli also tweeted today about the letter he received from PM Modi regarding the ‘Swachata’ and wrote a message which read – “.@narendramodi ji, heartfelt appreciation for this wonderful initiation. I‘ll do my best to be a part of my Swachh Bharat. #SwachhataHiSeva.”
Rajinikanth is now contemplating a political career and had recently said that he may soon float a party soon. Sources close to him have indicated that the preparations for his political journey have already begun and December this year he will foray into politics. Reports are doing rounds that these words by Rajinikanth about Modi’s Swachata might be his first steps towards his political journey.
