Gurgaon: HRD Minister Smriti Irani today said the 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan' should not remain limited to the cleanliness of the environment but should also include the cleanliness of mind.

Irani also announced Wasima, a Class VI student from village Gunawat in Mewat, as the Brand Ambassador of Bal Swachhta Abhiyan for Haryana state.

Addressing a gathering at the concluding function of Bal Swachhta Mission organized at Mewat Model School Nuh today, Irani said the cleanliness drive was not a political programme, rather the children of the country should get a clean atmosphere and surroundings.

She appealed to the students to wash hands before meals and said they should also ask their elders to wash their hands.

The Union Minister released a CD of documentary on the cleanliness mission, which will be sent to schools in the state.
