Jamshedpur has been listed the top position among the cities of Eastern India having a population over 10 lakh as the cleanest city. The result is based on a cleanliness survey ‘Swachh Survekshan 2017’ undertaken in 434 cities by Narendra Modi government’s “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan”.
Jamshedpur occupies the 64th place in the list of clean cities of India. It went 2 ranks up compared to the last year’s survey in which it was voted 66th place in India.
Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiyah Naidu today handed the awards at the National Media Centre in New Delhi. The deputy commissioner (DC) of East Singhbhum Amit Kumar received the award with the special officer of Jamshedpur Notified Area Committee Deepak Sahay.
“We are heading towards fulfilling the dream of making cleanliness a movement and our objective is to show that where do they stand in cleanliness and what do they need to learn from others” Naidu said.
Indore topped the list of 10 cleanest cities of the country, while Uttar Pradesh’s Gonda ranked as the dirtiest one. Jamshedpur bags the first position in entire eastern India and we hope with the contribution of the government and Jamshedpurites we can make the city even more clean and green. The day is not far when we can see our city in the top 10 list, one effort at a time.
