The Prime Minister was in the historic coastal town for a two-day informal summit with Chinese President, where Modi and Xi Jinping visited the beachside temple complex, witnessed cultural shows and held several rounds of talks.

On Day 2 of the summit, PM Modi went on a cleanliness drive and a short video of the same showed him walking barefoot in the sand, collecting trash in a bag. Modi released the video on Twitter, captioning it, “Let us ensure our public places are clean and tidy.”


He also posted pictures of the acupressure roller he was holding while plogging on the beach.

Picking litter while jogging is referred to as plogging. In his radio talk, ‘Mann Ki Baat’, last month, Modi lauded the effort of plogger Ripudaman Belvi, who has launched a campaign to pick up litter while jogging.

Last week, Modi termed plogging as “win-win because it improves fitness and the environment”.

In his Independence Day speech this year, the Prime Minister had called on people to stop use of single-use plastic bags.

During his speech on Independence Day this year, Modi had announced a campaign to make the country free of single-use plastic. He also called on technical experts, industrialists to invest in recycling single-use plastic

he was not elected as safaiwala...he could have use the time wasted in the sea beach as safaiwala for the benefit of people as PM.there are many appointed as safaiwala with meagre salary.all MPs,ministers,officers etc should devote their time for which they are elected,selected,appointed instead of pleasing a man who dont know what his job is...

dramebaaz modi, using plastic carry bag for cleaning when he asks the world to stop using them, has a cameraman filming him but no one else helping him, and the beach already looks pretty much clean, probably had the little garbage set up so he could clean it on camera.
