Bollywood actress Kajol who was recently present in Delhi to advocate Lifebuoy's "Help A Child Reach Five" movement at World Economic Forum (WEF) regional summit had all thanks to say to none other than Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The actress stated to the media present over there that it was Modi’s campaign that helped the campaign grab a lot of attention.
The actress said, "Modi himself talked about how hand washing is important and I was like, 'Yay hand-washing is important and the Prime Minister also says so'. After that, the programme has grabbed a lot of attention. It has kind of become fashionable and a trend,"
The actress, who attended the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) summit in September as the hand washing brand ambassador, also talked about the benefits of the basic habit. "Hand wash is the need of the hour instead of just a habit. Hand wash is the first basic and cost effective step that we can adopt to prevent any disease. It was taught to us when we were kids, but we have forgotten about it."
