Indore beats every city to become ‘Garbage-free’, when will other cities follow suit?

Clean India movement (Swachh Bharat Abhiyan) is a massive movement started by Government of India to create a clean India, which is one of the best tributes India could pay to Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary in 2019 as per the plan of Indian Prime Minister, Mr Narendra Modi who launched this mission on October 2nd, 2014.

Indore has retained the accolade of the ‘cleanest city’ once again according to Swachh Bharat Rankings released by Union Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry. Indore is the largest and most populous city of Madhya Pradesh and it was described by the Economic Times as the commercial capital of the state.

It is the cleanest city in the country despite being most populous one in central India. Indore retained the title of the cleanest city for the second time. With waste management initiatives and techniques, it beats every other city in India to become garbage-free.

What a great achievement! They have cleared around 13 lakh tons of garbage from 100 acres in 6 months! Kudos to Indore! It has been said that the daily generation of waste is around 1,100 tonnes. Sadly, the waste from the past 4-5 decades was already there in the dump yard, making it extremely tough for the workers to clear it.

However, Indore set a great example by sorting out the woes ever so well.
