Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday performed Ganga Arti and washed the feet of sanitation workers during his visit to Prayagraj Kumbh Mela.
At the Kumbh, PM Modi participated in the Swachh Kumbh Swachh Aabhaar event, organised by Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation.
“It was a big responsibility to keep clean an area where 20-22 crore people had gathered. You have proved there is nothing impossible in the world. I salute each and every person making a contribution towards a Swachh Bharat,” he said.
He later performed the ‘aarti’ and interacted with the priests who conducted the puja.
He was accompanied by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and state Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Mahendra Nath Pandey.
