New Delhi, Sep 20 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi has invited noted gastroenterologist and liver transplant surgeon Saumitra Rawat to be part of the Swachhata Hi Seva initiative, saying that his contribution will be instrumental in building a clean and healthy India.
Rawat quit his 17 years of medical practice in the United Kingdom and joined Delhi’s Sir Ganga Ram Hospital.
“Your contribution to the field of medicine has helped the nation attain distinction in the healthcare sector globally as well as provided relief to the ailing. Your involvement in the cleanliness initiative would be instrumental building a clean and healthy India.
“I personally invite you to lend your support to the Swachhata Hi Seva and dedicate some time for the cause of Swachh Bharat,” reads the letter by Modi to Rawat.
