One of the major drawbacks that holds our country back from progressing is the lack of cleanliness. Despite India being a huge attraction point for tourists coming from all over the world, the level of cleanliness in our country is disgustingly low. Even though some efforts are made now and then to improve the situation, yet some people often go back to their routine habits.

To change this image, brilliant efforts are being taken by the Agra police. In the last 48 hours they conducted a cleanliness drive across 12 stations of Government Railway Police (GRP), Agra division. During this unprecedented cleanliness drive, GRP sent 109 people to jail for 24 hours, after they were found urinating in public areas. They were released after 24 hours with a fine ranging from Rs 100 to Rs 500 depending on the gravity of the act in creating public nuisance.

People were also taken in for spitting paan in public and creating ruckus after consumption of alcohol. The drive was lead by Senior Superintendent of Police, GRP, Gopeshnath Khanna as a part of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s initiative of ‘Swachh Bharat.’

He said, “The message behind such a drive is to convey people, that enough is enough. For more than six decades, our adamant social behavior has not changed. This city hosts millions of tourist every year, we just can’t be negligent and irresponsible when comes to showing etiquettes in public fora.”

The drive started on Friday and 23 men were caught during the first round. This kick started the campaign that focused on not just cleaning of spaces but also personnel. As a part of it, GRP police arrested 12 men in past 24 hours involved in arms act, theft and robbery.

The much needed initiative has the potential to change the situation in the country. Let’s just hope that these efforts are made regularly, and the fine induces at least some basic decency in the people who do not mind urinating in front of women and children.

Without a basic civil sense in the people, even good efforts made by the government will go futile.
