Swachh-Survekshan-Survey-2017-Indore-is-India's-cleanest-city,-Gujarat-is -cleanest-state-with-12-of-top 50 cities
Madhya Pradesh on Thrusday had its moment of pride(गौरव) as Indore and Bhopal featured (चित्रित किया) on the top two spots of India's cleanest cities. The list was based on a massive survey, Swachh Survekshan 2017, rating the cleanliness efforts put in by the municipalities in 500 Indian cities. The Swachh Survekshan ranked Gonda as the dirtiest city and Bhusawal in Maharashtra stands second-last in the ranking. Navi Mumbai is the cleanest Maharashtra city, according to the survey, at number 8 followed by Pune which is at rank 13. Interestingly(सुहावना होते हुए) , a story in Firstpost points out that the Pune Municipal Corporation's plans to implement Swachh Bharat scheme have come to a grining halt, with piles of garbage strewn across streets of the city. "The reason these mounds of garbage have come up all across the city is because the residents of Uruli Devachi and Phursungi have refused to let the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) continue using their land as a dumping ground and landfill site," the report states.
