New Delhi: The Ramlila is underway and the prominent faces are often seen performing at Delhi’s Luv Kush Ramlila. This year Union Minister Harsh Vardhan on Friday stole the show as assumed a different role — legendary Raja Janak of Mithila — at a Ramlila and made sure he conveyed the message on the importance of clean environment.
The Environment Minister tried his hand in acting at the popular Ramleela depicting the life of Lord Rama organised by the Luv Kush committee in the sprawling grounds of the Red Fort.

As he delivered his dialogues on the mega stage, Harsh Vardhan slipped in the message about clean environment. In a conversation with Lord Rama, his character said, “I know you wish to live in a natural environment.” And, if air remains clean and pure, it will lead to a healthy life, he said.
#भगवानश्रीराम ने हमें #धर्म का अनुसरण करते हुए जीने की प्रेरणा दी है। मर्यादा #पुरुषोत्तम के रूप में उनका जीवन हम सभी को त्याग और मर्यादाओं के पालन की सीख देता है। #रामलीला में #राजाजनक का किरदार निभाकर भारत की गौरवशाली परंपरा और संस्कृति से रूबरु होने का मौका मिला #RamLeela pic.twitter.com/cBd4Wnginz
