New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Thursday lauded the efforts of actor Amitabh Bachchan and other leading citizens for giving a boss to the Clean India Campaign.

"Who won't get inspired when @SrBachchan himself wields the broom and joins Swachh Bharat Mission! Very significant effort," Modi tweeted on Bachchan's initiative.

He also praised hockey player Sardara Singh. "After the hockey stick, Sardara Singh scores with the broom! A great effort towards a Swachh Bharat."

The Prime Minister also hailed spiritual leader Baba Ram Rahim, the head of Dera Sacha Sauda, for his efforts.

"Appreciable effort by Baba Ram Rahimji and his team. Will motivate people across India to join Swachh Bharat Mission!" he said in another tweet.
