New Delhi:
Indore and Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh are top two India's cleanest cities while Gonda in Uttar Pradesh is the dirtiest, according to the 'Swachh Survekshan-2017', announced by the government on Thursday.

The survey results announced by Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said while Indore is the cleanest city in India, Bhopal gets 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.

Cities from Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Jharkhand did well, while those from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar fared poorly in the ratings.

Announcing the results, Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu said, “Gujarat and Chhattisgarh has the most cities improving in the cleanliness rankings.”
