India’s PM Narendra Modi has launched the biggest cleanliness drive this country has ever seen ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’, on recently concluded Mahatma Gandhi’s 145th birth anniversary. Also he has nominated several cinema celebs for this drive, and asked everyone to re-nominate 9 others. Surprising is that, not just those celebs who are nominated by Modi but the ones who didn’t get any nomination too volunteered to take part in this cleanliness drive.
The likes of Tamil stars including Surya and Khushboo have voted positively for Narendra Modi’s ‘Swachh Bharat’ (Clean India) campaign, and from Bollywood we have biggies like Priyanka Chopra supporting willing take to take part. But it is startling to notice that no Telugu super-star has come out open, supporting this campaign. Socially active stars like Mahesh, Charan, Bunny, Prabhas, Kajal or any other haven’t yet responded to PM Modi’s call. We wonder, why? Are our stars not interested to clear filth in an area and post that very same picture on their social networks through an app designed by government? As they are ready for Ice Bucket Challenges, why not this Clean India initiative?
