Chandigarh, January 26

Chandigarh has been declared as India’s Best UT in Citizen Feedback in the Swachh Survekshan Awards-2020, said UT Adviser Manoj Parida while addressing the 72nd Republic Day function here on Tuesday.

To sustain this title and for further improvements, 435 vehicles are being deployed in the city and Chandigarh will soon become a bin-free city, he added.

“I am extremely happy to share that with untiring efforts of the Chandigarh Administration and with the active cooperation of the people we have transformed Chandigarh into a model city of development and prosperity. When the rest of the country was under strict lockdown and residents could not go out to get essential items, it was only in Chandigarh that rations, milk and vegetables were home delivered in public transport buses,” he said.
