In social media, he explained his views on the importance of cleanliness.
“सफाई एक दिन का काम नहीं है। स्वच्छता टिकी रह पाएगी यदि सफाई हमारे निजी और सार्वजनिक जीवन का अभिन्न अंग बन जाती है। हमारा देश भी साफ क्यों नहीं हो सकता?” (Cleanliness is not one day task. Cleanliness can be sustained only when it becomes intrinsic part of both personal and social life of a person. Why can’t our country be clean?”, he wrote in a tweet that carried the video.
