NEW DELHI: As Prime Minister Narendra Modi launches the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan tomorrow, AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal would be leading a clean-up drive by his party in the vicinity of the former's official residence on Race Course road.

Kejriwal, along with his party's volunteers, will take part in the clean-up campaign at BR Camp in the Race Course road area even as Modi launches the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan in the national capital.            

As part of the events to mark the opening of the cleanliness mission tomorrow, the prime minister would also be visiting Valmiki Sadan.    

Interestingly, Valmiki Sadan is the place where AAP had launched its party symbol, the broom. The Valmiki community is known to be a strong supporter of AAP.          

Modi is scheduled to tomorrow visit Valmiki Sadan, which is under the jurisdiction of NDMC, to inaugurate a modern toilet block there.    

Talking about the cleanliness mission, Kejriwal said it should not be limited to being a "symbolic" initiative and the authorities should work for the betterment of safai karmacharis.            

Kejriwal appealed to the people to participate in the cleanliness drive and, at the same time, in a message aired on FM radio, asked people to give due respect to safai karmacharis.
