Puri, Nov 19 (IBNS): Popular sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik on Monday created a sand art here to mark World Toilet Day which also earned the appreciation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Besides creating a huge sand toilet, the artist specifically wrote the 9 crore figure in his art to highlight the number of toilets built under the cleanliness mission since its launch by the Indian government in 2014. 

Sharing the image, Sudarsan tweeted: "#WorldToiletDay My SandArt with message 'Swachh Bharat Mission' at puri beach in Odisha."

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who launched the campaign in 2014 with a target to make the country Open Defecation Free (ODF) on Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary (October 2019), was prompt in sharing the images on his Twitter page with a caption that read: "The movement for a cleaner India and ensuring better sanitation facilities is a people’s movement. It is the 130 crore Indians, particularly women and youngsters who have taken the lead in this movement. I congratulate all those working to fulfil the dream of a Swachh Bharat."
