Drawing inspiration from the PM we are running Swachh Bharat Abhiyan across the state. I congratulate and thank all residents; it is due to their efforts.

As compared to 2017 where Swachh Survekshan was conducted in 434 cities, this year the scope was enhanced manifold. While Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) bagged the award for waste management, which includes segregation of waste and transportation from household to Jawaharnagar dumping yard and recycling it, the rank of the city for cleanliness has not been released yet.

Maharashtra stood at the second place behind Jharkhand in the Swachh Survekshan 2018, while Chhattisgarh was at the third position in the category of "best-performing states". "You have to wait to get the details of rankings of all cities, including the ones that did badly", an official said.
