IANS  |  New Delhi 

Tulsi Gabbard, the first Hindu American in the US Congress, Thursday made an impromptu stop at a government school here and joined the children in cleaning up the school.

The Democrat from Hawaii made a stop at the Navyug School in Jor Bagh in south Delhi which comes under the New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) to participate in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

"Made impromptu stop at NDMC Navyug School Jor Bagh, public school in Delhi, so impressed with the kids!" tweeted Gabbard.

"@narendramodi Happily joined kids from NDMC Navyug School Jor Bagh cleaning up their school #CleanIndiaGreenIndia," she said in another tweet.

Gabbard had Wednesday called on Modi, their second meeting in over two months. She had earlier met Modi Sep 28, when he was visiting the US and presented him with a ginger flower garland from Hawaii.

Gabbard met Home Minister Rajnath Singh Thursday.
