Shiv Sena youth wing leader and president of the Mumbai Divisional Football Association Aaditya Thackeray teamed up with cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar in a clean-up drive in Mumbai on Monday.
The duo, along with a few volunteers, and sweepers of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), joined forces to clean up parts of Bandra Fort in Western Mumbai.
Thackeray Jr posted a few pictures of their effort on his Twitter handle and wrote in Marathi: "Our BMC sweepers work tirelessly day and night to keep Mumbai clean. Today, I and Mr Sachin Tendulkar@sachin_rt tried to give them a hand.”
In another post he wrote: “While cleaning up, realised once again that in terms of garbage, plastic and thermocol pose the biggest problems for Mumbai. It’s up to us to keep our city clean. Not littering and segregating garbage are solutions to keeping the city clean. I am grateful to @sachin_rt for joining me in this effort."
After doing his bit, Tendulkar had a few words of advice for his fans and followers in a video tweet: "We each have to do our bit to keep #IndiaClean. So, pick a group of friends, a street, and together let’s #CleanUp India. #SwachhataHiSeva."
India is celebrating Swachh Bharat week, which started on Monday, leading up to Swachh Bharat Divas that will be celebrated on October 2.
