People celebrate as Indore makes hat-trick, becomes No.1 city in cleanliness for 3rd time

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 the most populous one in central India.

Now, it is a proud moment to all the citizens of Indore as it retained the title of the cleanest city for the third straight year. With waste management initiatives and techniques, it beats every other city in India to become garbage-free.

Indore was adjudged India’s cleanest city in the central government’s cleanliness survey. The Swachh Survekshan awards 2019 were conferred by President Ram Nath Kovind at a ceremony in New Delhi. New Delhi Municipal Council area was given the “Cleanest Small City” award while Uttarakhand’s Gauchar was adjudged the ”Best Ganga Town” in the central government survey.

The cleanliness awards are distributed by the Union Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs. Congratulating Indore, Union Housing Minister Hardeep Singh Puri took to his official Twitter handle to say, “Absolutely Brilliant! Indore is India’s Cleanest City for the 3rd year running.

My heartiest congratulations to the Swachhagrahis of Indore for their unmatched dedication & participation in transforming Swachh Bharat into a Jan Andolan.”
