INDORE: Swachh brand ka kamaal — Indore stands vivid in the memories of guests, who left after attending the investors’ summit. Top babus, honchos to industrialists, everybody chirped about Indore’s cleanliness on social media.
Tweets highlighting the tales of city’s exemplary initiatives trended as they bid adieu with big promises. NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant in multiple tweets described his journey to Indore as motivational and inspirational while Nasscom president Debjani Ghosh amused by the cleanliness drive claimed that India will change if other cities also show the same passion.
“What other municipalities must learn from Indore? Use of 12 automated road sweeping machines which daily sweep all major city roads (500 KM) from 10:00 pm to 6:00 am. The bio CNG plant where 20 TPD of organic waste is processed and 800 kg of bio CNG is generated to run 15 city buses,” Kant tweeted.
Kant posted three tweets about Indore in last two days. On the day of the investors’ summit he tweeted “Visit to Indore is always inspirational and motivational. It’s neat, clean, tidy with a great sense of pride amongst its citizens. Household segregation of waste, NGO involvement, night cleaning and sweeping, heavy fines, waste to compost and methane on which buses operate. Fabulous.”
Kant was in Indore on Friday as a guest speaker to speak on Industry 4.0 and emerging technologies in country. During his visit Kant met a handful of startups and praised the startup culture of Indore.
Nasscom president Debjani Ghosh tweeted, “The most amazing thing in Indore is the pride its citizens take in keeping their city clean... no paan stains on the road... no littering...the entire community is involved. Would change India if we figured out how to fire that same passion in every other city.”
Pranav Adani, managing director, agro, oil and gas at Adani Group also took to twitter to share his views. “It was an honour to share the Adani Group's vision in transforming Madhya Pradesh at @InvestinMP… for this opportunity and hope that we could work together in building valuable assets for the state and its people,” he tweeted.
