Delhi has another reason to cheer because their cantonment is awarded to be the cleanest in India. It is truly a moment of great pride and honour as the capital city swept the clean cantt tag. Swachh Survekshan Awards 2019 declared its results, today, 6th March which made it clear that our city never fails in making us proud.
This cleanliness survey takes place in all cities and states rating them on the basis of cleanliness and public feedback among their indicators. Delhi Cantt had been awarded the cleanest Cantonment of India in 2018 as well which makes this year the second year of victory.
Ravi Gupta, a citizen of Delhi, showed his happiness when he was asked how he felt about this achievement, “I feel very proud that my city has won an award for having the cleanest Cantt. As an individual, I will make sure that this award doesn’t lose its meaning and we maintain the cleanliness.”
Anjali Sharma, a college student, also had a few words to say for her city, “This makes me really excited because people who don’t live in India have a very stereotypical assumption about our country where they think that this is a very dirty place. This news made me really happy because this is not just an achievement for the country but also a proof to break those stereotypes.”
The Union Minister of state, Hardeep Singh Puri also congratulated the city by tweeting:
NDMC did not stay back and swept away the award for being the India’s Cleanest Small City. Hardeep Singh Puri also tweeted about how happy this makes him:
Indore bagged the title of India’s Cleanest City, 2019. The Swachh Survekshan Awards are a wake up call for us to keep our cities clean because our city is our responsibility.
