Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat campaign turned dramatic in Srinagar on the eve of his Diwali visit as Chief Minister Omar Abdullah clicked himself cleaning Jawahar Nagar with municipal workers. The development followed after he was nominated as one of the nine individuals by actor Salman Khan.
According to details that Omar shared on twitter, Omar drove to Jawahar Nagar and joined Dr Qasba and his workers for the night session of the cleaning operation.
Barely 12 hours after Salman nominated Omar along with Aamir Khan, Azim Premji, Chanda Kochhar, Pradeep Dhoot, Rajat Sharma, Rajinikanth and Vineet Jain, Omar Abdullah was seen wearing a miner’s cap and carrying a broom in Jawahar Nagar.
Responding to the nomination with thanks, Omar had within seven hours asked his more than 6.5 lakh followers to watch his twitter. “Watch this space for my contribution & the names of the 9 I will have to nominate,” he wrote. As per Prime Minister Modi’s speech every one nominated for the cleanness drive will have to involve nine others.
