Keeping the mela area clean was a mammoth task but these people performed their duties sincerely.
He was very soft spoken and told us that he will wash our feet.
He then washed and wiped our feet and felicitated us with ‘angavastram’.
“They have become a source of inspiration across the world for working with dedication,” he added.“Every individual finds some unforgettable moment during his life but for me, interacting with sanitary workers is a treasured experience which I will not forget in my life,” said Modi.
