Bhopal, June 11: A doctor from Bhopal who has his own skin clinic found a rather unique way of contributing to PM Narendra Modi's Swachta Abhiyaan. Named Abhinit Gupta, he carried garbage from his luxury vehicle DC Avanti worth Rs. 70 lakh in order to spread awareness about cleanliness among the society. Abhinit attached a trolley at the back of his car and roamed around the city collecting garbage. There were hoardings of the Swachta Abhiyaan attached to the cart behind. Naturally, a luxury model swiftly moving across the roads but carrying garbage heap at the back got all eyes. His aim was to get the message of cleanliness across. The doctor has challenged Bollywood celebrities with the likes of Salman Khan, Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and cricketers MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli to continue with this challenge.
There is a video of Abhinit shared on Twitter, which shows the garbage cart attached on the back of his luxurious yellow car. According to Abhinit, "Until we do not think clean we cannot keep the environment clean. No work is big or small but it is our duty to maintain cleanliness in our surroundings." He stressed that it is a duty as a responsible citizen of India to keep our country clean.
Check out the video of Dr. Abhinit Gupta carrying garbage and spreading awareness about cleanliness:

Abhinit personally has been ensuring that he follows cleanliness in his house and his surroundings. This car was Abhinit's gift to his father on Valentine's day and his family too is supportive of his campaign of spreading awareness with the use of the luxurious family car. He wanted to gift his father something that will get heads turning. While the car did the purpose, now Abhinit has been putting it to better use by carrying garbage at the back of it from the city. With the challenge now passed on to celebrities and cricketers, we wonder if any of them will actually take it up.
