Prime Minister Narendra Modi invited Malayalam megastar Mammootty to join his ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan campaign and lend more credibility to it.

Later, Mammootty responded to Modi's invitation. In his Facebook post, Mammootty said that he would be more than happy to be a part of the well-received initiative. He went on to add that NaMo is doing a good thing by following in Mahatma Gandhi’s footsteps.

In a letter, the actor said that personal hygiene should always be given top priority as cleanliness always begins at a personal level.

This is what he wrote, “We all know that personal hygiene has to be given top priority, and once an individual learns to respect his own body, he will be inspired to spread the word of cleanliness to those around him. I am of the view that commitment to planet earth and our country has to begin with the first step of ensuring that we keep our homes clean first, and then we set out to keep our promise to our brethren and the whole of our country and world.”

 

 


“Dear Prime Minister Modiji,

At the outset, while accepting your invitation to take part in the ‘Swachhata Hi Seva ‘ movement, let me congratulate you on your emphasis on cleanliness, which the Mahatma said, is godliness.

I take it as an honour to receive this personal invitation from you. For my part, I have always believed that cleanliness has to start from within, like self-discipline, and not something that needs to be imposed. Yet, we have to frame rules to make our country cleaner because awareness campaigns have not always been consistent. I support your efforts in that direction, and towards making Gandhiji’s dreams come true.

We all know that personal hygiene has to be given top priority, and once an individual learns to respect his own body he will be inspired to spread the word of cleanliness to those around him. I am of the view that commitment to planet earth and our country has to begin with the first step of ensuring that we keep our homes clean first, and then we set out to keep our promise to our brethren and the whole of our country and world. That is the soul of our civilization, which is codified in the phrase, Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam.

I express my thanks for this invite once again.

Best wishes,

Yours sincerely”

Within seconds, the post went viral. Mammootty was last seen in the Onam release Pullikaaran Staara, which was a decent hit. He will next be seen in ‘Masterpiece’.
