This is how public left the stadium after INDvUSA in FIFAU17WC

India is hosting its first-ever FIFA event this year. But not only Indian team struggled to go past against USA in the first game of the FIFA Under-17 World Cup. On the other hand, visitors at the stadium failed to maintain the basic cleanliness standards.

Now, where is Swachh Bharat? The most recent example of people forgetting about the Swacch Bharat Abhiyan was seen at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Sunday.Is keeping environment clean is just about clicking photos with a broom and posting them on social media? Isn’t it our responsibility to keep our surroundings clean and not litter the public places?

Swachh Bharat Abhiyan has not been started to be a social event where you’ll take part only when celebrities are seen doing the same. It’s really shameful that even educated people are being told not to litter and keep the environment clean, as it’s good for your health too.

We never leave a chance to criticise our government when it fails to fulfill a promise or a duty. But who is to be blamed when we ourself litter our surroundings. Is it the job of the government to clean your litter too?

Keeping India clean is about a collective intent and we should not leave such a disappointing image of our country.
