The former Chief Minister of Delhi chose the BR Camp, as the low income area is called, on the very day Modi launched his Clean India campaign.

Kejriwal was accompanied by several employees of the civic agency, and he later had tea with them, an Aam Aadmi Party spokesman said. The BR Camp falls in Kejriwal's New Delhi assembly constituency.

AAP activists also picked up brooms in several parts of the capital to show their commitment for a Clean India but without joining any government sponsored event.

"AAP will launch a cleanliness drive October 2," an AAP tweet said.

"All MLAs and leaders will work as helpers to Safai Karmcharis (sweepers) and help them in their work."

Swatchh Bharat mission aims at creating a 'Clean India' in the next five years. Modi would symbolically wield a broom and reach out to all Indians to make cleanliness a mass movement.

Modi had declared that the mission would be launched October 2 and that a "clean India" would be the best tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary in 2019. Gandhi had a penchant for cleanliness in his personal habits and strongly promoted it in society.
