New Delhi, Oct 4 (IANS) To spread awareness about the ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ among non-resident Indians living in New York, BJP leader Vijay Jolly has launched a similar clean city campaign, a statement said Saturday.
The public awareness drive aims to replicate Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s clean India campaign that was launched across the nation Oct 2. Scores of volunteers along with BJP leaders cleaned the 52nd street, 2nd and 3rd Avenue in downtown Manhattan.
“What the Modi-led Indian government and citizens are doing in India, we are replicating. Spreading the awareness of this programme for a cleaner environment here in the US,” said Jolly, global convenor of Overseas Friends of Bharatiya Janata Party (OFBJP).
