Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu announced the Swachh Bharat Awards in New Delhi based on the Swachh Survekshan 2017 (Swachh Bharat survey 2017) which was conducted in 434 cities and towns of the country. While releasing the findings of the survey, Naidu said that Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Jharkhand and Chattisgarh followed by Andhra Pradesh and Telangana have taken big steps since the launch of Swachh Bharat Mission in October 2014. While Madhya Pradesh had every reason to be proud of, since two of its cities Indore and Bhopal, bagged the first two spots in the list of top 10 cleanest cities of the country and Gujarat emerged as the cleanest state with as many as 12 representations in the list of top 50, one state that would be slightly disappointed in its performance is Uttar Pradesh. And this stems from fact that in the cleanliness ranking it had only one representation in top 100 cities. Also, as many as 10 cities from UP made it to the list of bottom 20 cities in Swachh survey. Here’s are these cities on the Swachh Survekshan Survey 2017 list:

– Unnao (417)

– Badaun (Budaun) (420)

– Baraut (421)

– Bulandshahr (423)

– Hapur (424)

– Khurja (425)

– Shahjahanpur (426)

– Bahraich (429)

– Hardoi (431)

– Gonda (434)

The Swachh Survekshan-2017 ranked Gonda as the least clean city and Bhusawal in Maharashtra stands second-last in the ranking. In the survey, about 18 lakh people responded to a set of six questions which were taken into consideration for the survey after the elimination of duplicate feedback. Overall, the survey had elicited the views of 37 lakh people for the 434 cities, which account for about 60 percent of the total urban population in the country. “I think this is the largest ever such survey to be conducted by the government on any issue of public importance,” Naidu said at the event. He also added that a survey will be commissioned in all the 4,041 statutory towns and cities in the country. The survey aims at capturing the outcomes of ongoing efforts to stop open defecation in urban areas and to improve the door-to-door collection, processing and disposal of Municipal Solid Waste.
