Bengaluru sources added that rattled with the poor rating given to Bengaluru by Swachh Bharat Survekshan 2018, a top official yesterday questioned the methodology adopted by the Centre for it and claimed the city fared much better than last year. Presently the city was ranked at 216th spot in the SBS-2018, released yesterday while Indore was first, followed by Bhopal and Chandigarh in second and third place, whereas Mysuru, which was in fifth place last year, slipped to eighth place this year.



Bengaluru Mayor Sampath Raj told that “He said he would hold discussions with officials to find out the reasons behind the poor rating and we have to see what reasons Urban Development Ministry has given for the ranking. We have built 400 toilets and segregation at source is happening. So we don't know what parameter they have adopted".

Moreover the Mayor said he was shocked over Mysuru being rated below Indore and Bhopal as he felt that the royal city was way better than the two cities in Madhya Pradesh. Meanwhile, Kathyayini Chamaraj founder of Civic Bengaluru, begged to differ, saying that dumping of waste at public places, littering by citizens, poor handling of solid waste and zero segregation of waste at source led to the poor rating. Further he said though manual handling of waste was prohibited, it continued.
