Modi, who currently follows only 1,698 people from across the world, not only followed Jain, but also retweeted his post within 48 hours.

Apart from Modi, other BJP leaders have also appreciated the initiative taken by Akash's family. Akash also said that his father has been supporting Modi's initiative from long and hence decided to do something that could promote 'Clean India' drive.

"One of the most followed people on Twitter follows me. Nothing can be bigger than this," he added.
