Indore’s Sabzi Mandi Is The Best Example Of ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’


Yesterday, user @kanupriiya posted a picture of an extremely organized and pleasant looking vegetable market in Indore on Twitter. The market is popularly referred to as a sabzi mandi.

The post already has over 19000 likes and 4000 retweets in less than 20 hours.

The picture shows two buckets in front of each vegetable cart. One is for wet waste and the other for dry waste. It is important to understand that segregation of waste is a major issue for the municipality and by doing it at a local level, the whole task becomes much simpler for those at the end of the garbage disposal chain.

The below tweets capture the reactions of the majority to Kanupriya’s post on Twitter.

User @OyeSwapnil said Indore set an example for other cities because of its cleanliness and added that it was also the best city to live in India.

User @Widely_Unknown said the picture was a testament to Indore’s public awareness about cleanliness. He applauded ex-Indore BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) Member of Parliament, Sumitra Mahajan for it. He was amazed on seeing the picture because it showed much better conditions than the ones in his vicinity.

User @im_YRP said it was a great initiative taken by Indore’s District Magistrate and the Municipality Corporation as he tweeted,

“Gr8 initiative taken by DM,Nagar Nigam as well to make sanitation & health awareness across city that’s why they maintained there ranking as well #Swachh No 1,Such intiative should also be taken all across other cities to make awareness of #SwatchhBHARAT.”

Another user, @BeingHemilistic took it a step further and wanted to implement it in the local markets in Ahmedabad. We hope this inspires other users to do the same.
