Clean India drive will benefit poor people: PM Narendra Modi
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday said proper implementation of the Clean India campaign will benefit poor people.

He said if the surroundings are kept clean, it will serve the poor people in a big way.
"I am seeing the greatest impact on children too. Parents are now saying that kids are picking up chocolate wrappers."
