Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan on Saturday picked up brooms during a 'Maha Cleanathon' held as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

Bachchan, the campaign ambassador, and Fadnavis took part in the event, along with volunteers and students, at the state government-run J J Hospital in Mumbai.

 

"Fifty cities in Maharashtra will be 'swachh' by October 2 and 7,000 villages in the state are now open-defecation free," Fadnavis said.

On public participation in building toilets, the Chief Minister said, "If we don't involve people in the construction of toilets, it doesn't fulfil the purpose. It becomes a storage space."

"When you see someone littering. Go stop them. Tell them what they are doing is wrong. When you keep doing this repeatedly, people will change," Bachchan said.
