Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, in an interactive session organised by UNICEF and the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation, said that if every person in the country gives one hour of their time every year, then we can have a billion plus cleaning hours every year.

He said, “I feel like a part of this team. You either love your country or you don’t. Even as a common citizen, you can do your bit to keep your country clean by not littering, if you truly love it.”
