NSSO survey: Sikkim is the cleanest state!The results of survey carried out last year by National Sample Survey Office (NSSO) has been released today by Union Rural Development Minister, Mr. Narendra Singh Tomar. As per the survey, Sikkim has been adjudged the cleanest state while Jharkhand has come last in the list on the condition of sanitation in rural areas of twenty-six states. The survey has listed Kerala, Mizoram, Himachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Haryana, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Manipur and Meghalaya among the top 10 states. Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Jammu & Kashmir have failed poorly.
Interestingly, the performance of Gujarat, the home-state of Hon'ble PM, is average (14th position) only.
Kudos to beautiful Sikkim and its colourful people.
