'PM Narendra Modi's Praise Has Inspired Me,' Says Mission Prabhughat Volunteer


VARANASI — Temsutula Imsong, a young social worker who was praised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for her dedicated efforts to clean the ghats in Varanasi, on Thursday said the appreciation would inspire her to work harder.

"I am from Nagaland state and have a small NGO here and I do social work. I don't know exactly why he praised me but I work among rural people and maybe that is where we connect. When we saw the tweet, we were very happy and more inspired," Imsong told ANI.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Prime Minister shared his appreciation of Imsong's work on Twitter.

Imsong works with a voluntary social organisation called 'Sakaar'.

She has been part of a campaign called 'Mission Prabhughat' which seeks to clean the ghats in Varanasi and inspire people to keep their surroundings tidy.
