At the same time I have been told that all houses under construction are responsible for the same offence, spilling their building material as well as debris ino the drains which are totally choked..
How can the overflow of rain watr ever flow through?

We will never be able to reach the goal of a Swach Bharat until there is a firm hand, harsh punishment and educated,competent officrs such as those Lee Kwan Yew used when he pulled little Singapore out of the mire of ignorance and poverty to be a shinng example of a supremely beautiful, clean and orderly City-State which it is today.
