Chennai, Oct 3 (BPNS)
AIADMK deposed leader and former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, O. Panneerselvam (OPS) said that the indifference of DMK government has led to the poor performance of Tamil Nadu cities in Swacch Surveskhan national rankings.
It is to be noted that in the recent Swacch Surveskhan ranking, Madurai was placed at 45th place out of the 45 cities that were subjected to rankings. 45 cities with over 10 lakh population were considered for Swacch Surveskhan rankings.
Interestingly in the rankings, Chennai was placed in 42nd spot while Coimbatore was in 44th place.
He also said that not even a single local body of Tamil Nadu figured in the list of cities (with less than one lakh population) in the ranking. The former Chief Minister said that there were several media reports on the waste bins in the various parts of the cities of the state brimming with waste. He called upon Chief Minister, M.K. Stalin to ensure that waste cleaning is properly done and that Tamil Nadu turns into a clean state and climbs up the ladder of clean towns.
