Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday collected plastic bottles, plates and other garbage thrown on the beach outside the Taj Fisherman’s Cove Resort and Spa near Mamallapuram where he is staying.
Clad in a black kurta-pajama, Mr. Modi was seen with a large plastic bag in hand during his early morning walk as he picked out plastic litter, water bottles strewn on the sands.
Walking bare foot along the sea shore, he was seen picking up slippers from the sands normally given to guests staying at the five-star property. In a video tweeted by PM Modi, he is seen picking up litter at a beach near Taj Fisherman’s Cove Resort and Spa where he is staying for the informal summit. “Plogging at a beach in Mamallapuram this morning. It lasted for over 30 minutes. Also handed over my ‘collection’ to Jeyaraj, who is a part of the hotel staff,” he tweeted.
