Noida will be the cleanest city in India, said BJP MLA from the city Pankaj Singh. Singh, the son of Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and a first-time MLA, said this during a meeting with Noida Authority officials yesterday. Taking stock of the cleanliness of the city, Singh told officials about complaints received against garbage littered on the roads. Officials said that these will be cleaned by June 30, according to Amar Ujala report. They also told Singh that they are taking anti larval measures like spraying chemicals in drains to control mosquito breeding.
Notably, Indore in Madhya Pradesh was adjudged as India’s cleanest city while Gonda in Uttar Pradesh is the dirtiest, according to the ‘Swachh Survekshan-2017’, the central government had said on May 4, according to PTI report. The survey results were announced by Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu. Madhya Pradesh got the distinction as Bhopal came to the second position in the cleanliness ranking of 434 cities.
The ‘Swachh Survekshan-2017’ ranked Gonda as the dirtiest city and Bhusawal in Maharashtra stands second-last in the ranking. Gujarat has the maximum of 12 cities among the top 50 clean cities, closely followed by Madhya Pradesh with 11 and Andhra Pradesh with eight. Uttar Pradesh accounted for half of the bottom 50 cities in the cleanliness ranking.
The 38-year-old earlier had said that bad actions of a handful of people bring the bad name to the entire legislature. Singh had said that the behaviour of legislators must be commensurate with the expectations of their voters. Singh had said the people who elect the MLAs expect them to raise issues concerning the public in the Legislative Assembly.

It is the behaviour which brings a bad name to the entire institution only because of the bad actions of a handful of people. Gradually, people may lose their faith and confidence in the legislators, Singh said.
