The results for Swachh Survekshan 2018 have been announced and Indore in Madhya Pradesh has retained its title of being India's cleanest city. The results were announced by Hardeep Singh Puri, Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs. Swachh Survekshan 2018, which was the first pan Indian exercise to assess cleanliness in urban India, surveyed 4,203 cities from January 4 to March 10, 2018. Bhopal has been ranked as India's second cleanest city for two years in a row and Chandigarh was ranked as the third cleanest city, moving up from Rank 11 in 2017.
The BMC has said that it doesn’t need to submit its proposal for the Goregaon-Mulund Link Road (GMLR) to the Union ministry of environment and forests (MoEF). The proposed 13.7km connector, 4.7km of which will be through the Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP), promises to cut down peak-hour travel time between the city’s western and eastern suburbs from over two hours to just 15 minutes, but environmentalists have always been concerned about its effects on a rare green lung of the city.
