Responding to Modi's call, individuals from diverse backgrounds, including politicians and students, took part in the 'Swachhata hi Seva' campaign. Multiple ministries, government agencies, and social organizations were also observed participating in the campaign to champion the cause of cleanliness.

Sharing a 4-minute video on his official X account, Modi posted, "Today, as the nation focuses on Swachhata, Ankit Baiyanpuriya and I did the same! Beyond just cleanliness, we blended fitness and well-being also into the mix. It is all about that Swachh and Swasth Bharat vibe!".
