Yet another feat in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's kitty! He will conferred with an award by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for PM's ambitious pet project - Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. 

Jitendra Singh, MoS PMO, on Monday made the announcement and said: "Another award, another moment of pride for every Indian as PM Modi's diligent and innovative initiatives bring laurels from across the world. PM Modi to receive award from Bill Melinda Gates Foundation for Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan during his visit to the United States."

Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is owned by billionaire philanthropist and Microsoft founder Bill Gates and his wife Melinda Gates. 

Earlier this year, Bill Gates had congratulated the government for the achievements made by the Ayushman Bharat healthcare scheme in its first 100 days. Prime Minister Narendra Modi too thanked Gates saying the scheme stems out of the government's commitment to provide top quality and affordable healthcare to the poor.
