As another feather in Jaipur's shiny cap, the city's railway station has been declared as one of the cleanest in the country.
Only recently, it was announced that Jodhpur was home to India's cleanest railway station. Now, in the latest development, it has been revealed that Jaipur has the second most clean railway station in the country. Jaipurites, pat yourself on the back and the next time someone tells you some other city is better than yours, you know what to counter them with!
Though this is the second time that Jodhpur railway station will hold this title, it is a first for Jaipur. The fact that the city's railway station has been awarded the second cleanest railway station in the country is nothing short of spectacular and it makes one proud to be a Jaipurite.
Also, now Jaipur will be looked upon as more than just a city with a vibrant past and a colourful heritage. This marks a change in Jaipurites’ habits and also puts Jaipur on a pedestal of one of the most developed cities in the country.
The authorities were able to achieve this with the help of implementing sanitation rules and constructing toilets at all accessible places. Apart from that, installation of garbage cans and segregation of waste was one thing that especially had an effect on the cleanliness of the place.
Needless to say, the staff and workers, along with die-hard Jaipurites, worked day and night to achieve this. Keeping the entire station clean is a herculean task and when it’s a station the size of Jaipur, it becomes a daunting challenge that must be taken head on.
After obtaining the "Heritage City" tag from UNESCO, this award comes as another laurel in Jaipur's wreath. We're glad that the city is constantly progressing and can't wait to see more of what the city has under its belt.
