The Ecological Protection Organisation launched the cleanliness campaign at the Chandrapur Fort in August.

In his his monthly radio broadcast 'Mann Ki Baat', Modi highlighted the story of the fort's transformation.

"People performed the task of cleaning the fort, non-stop, without any fatigue... 200 days of continuous labour," he said. "They sent me photographs — before and after. I was overwhelmed on seeing them," he said.

"This mammoth effort of bringing about cleanliness is a wonderful example of fostering aesthetics, co-operation and continuum. Forts are symbols of our heritage. And it is the duty of all to keep their historical heritage safe and clean," he added.
