Indore and Bhopal, both in Madhya Pradesh, have emerged as the cleanest cities in the country as per a massive cleanliness survey commissioned by the Union Urban Development Ministry.

The survey — Swachh Survekshan 2017 — was carried out by the Quality Council of India across 434 cities in the country and is based on the feedback of 18 lakh respondents.

The results of the survey were announced by Urban Development Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday.

The results are seen as a jolt to the metros as all of them have received poor ranking in comparison with the emerging urban areas.
