The PM will be conferred with the award during his visit to the US in September.

Taking to Twitter, Minister of State for Development of North Eastern Region, Jitendra Singh, made the announcement, adding that it is ‘another moment of pride for every Indian’.

“Another award, another moment of pride for every Indian, as PM Modi’s diligent and innovative initiatives bring laurels from across the world. Sh @narendramodi to receive an award from Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for #SwachhBharatAbhiyaan during his visit to the United States,” tweeted Singh.

Earlier, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) conferred its highest civilian honour – ‘Order of Zayed’ on PM Modi in August. The award was presented to the Prime Minister by Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan at the Presidential Palace in Abu Dhabi.
