Shortly after launching the movement through a video conference interaction with a cross-section of people from 17 locations across the country, the Prime Minister travelled to the Babasaheb Ambedkar Higher Secondary School at Rani Jhansi Road in central Delhi. He offered floral tributes to a statue of Babasaheb Ambedkar and participated in the cleanliness drive. He also interacted with young students at the school and exhorted them towards the cause of Swachhata ( cleanliness).

The Prime Minister travelled to and from the school in normal traffic and without customary protocol. No special traffic arrangements were made for his visit, according to a PIB release.
