Indian test cricket captain and heartthrob of Indian Youth Virat Kohli has done something which caught PM Modi’s attention. He has proved that he is not only good on the cricket field but also is a responsible citizen towards the Country.
On the eve of Third Test against New Zealand at Holkar Stadium in Indore, after the practise session, Virat was seen picking up the empty water bottles on the ground and throwing them away in the dustbin.
When PM Modi watched this news on ABP News TV, he applauded Virat for his gesture and his contribution towards Clean India Movement.
PM Modi said,
“Dear @imVkohli, saw your #MyCleanIndia moment on @abpnewstv. A small but powerful gesture that will surely inspire everyone.”

In reply, Kohli thanked the Prime Minister saying,
“Thank you @narendramodi sir. We all are trying to make a difference for the betterment of our country. Led in an inspirational way by you.”

On 2nd October, On Gandhi’s Jayanti, Virat Kohli and the Indian team had joined BCCI president Anurag Thakur in a clean-up drive at the Eden Gardens stadium in Kolkata during India-New Zealand second Test match. Virat was seen sweeping the floor of the stadium. 2nd October also marked the second anniversary of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
It’s a responsibility of every citizen to keep the country clean. And PM Modi’s dream to make the India clean till 2nd October 2019 will be fulfilled only if everyone will put his move forward in making the Country clean. Virat Kohli’s contribution is an inspiration for us towards the ‘Swachh Bharat’.
