The CM appreciates the efforts of dera and announces to make all districts open defecation free by June 23 and urban areas by September 25.

The CM urged the people of Karnal to contribute in maintaining cleanliness in their vicinity.

The dera chief urged people not to go in for open defecation and asked them to get toilets constructed at the houses of the poor.

He asked people to say no to drugs and count the benefits of cow milk and urine.                       

Around 4 lakh to 5 lakh followers were expected to participate in the massive drive, he said.                       

He said, “My new film ‘Jattu Engineer’ is based on cleanliness and will be released on May 19.”                        

The dera chief said efforts should be made to bring back Naxalites into the mainstream instead of killing them.
