"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.
