Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said today 'Swachhta Hi Sewa' (Cleanliness is Service) is a "historic step" and that the sanitation drive is becoming a people's movement.
Naqvi said his ministry was observing 'Swachhta Hi Sewa', a fortnight-long cleanliness campaign, in its all offices.
Cleanliness is no more just a matter of habit, it has become a passion and the people, particularly the youth, are getting attracted to the campaign, initiated by the prime minister, he said.
"It is a historic step and turning into a people's movement," he added.
Scores of BJP workers welcomed the minister to his native Rampur.
