Bhopal: It was a different Eid for 64 year-old Saifuddin Faiz of Bhopal who wished to spread awareness among people about Swatch Bharat. While people were busy celebrating Eid on 11 August 2019, Saifuddin Faiz continued his cleanliness drive. During the cleanliness drive, he wore clothes bearing messages indicating the importance of cleanliness and left with a broom in both hands. He says that he offered Namaz in the morning and started cleaning as usual which brings happiness.

When Saifuddin Faiz got free after marrying off his children, he took a sweep in his hand. Now for the last two and a half years, every day he works for three hours cleaning the city as well as went to Mumbai, Vadodara, Nagpur and also cleaned many places in these cities to spread the message of Swatch Bharat. For him it’s a one man army as he did not get any help from any organization or government.

Still his mission continues, as he goes out alone to do this work and spread the message of making cleanliness a part of life.
