I think we have to do it ourselves no body is there to do it for us, We have to make our own development authorities. The representatives we have selected are least bothered of doing anything for the sanitation and safety of the general public who have made them what they are.
Now we have to think on these lines that how we can do to cleanliness of nalas and naalis and roads etc. more  
Bench marks can not be 100% in the beginning. They should be revised from year to year. more  
The sewage system in Hyderabad was installed several years ago by the Erstwhile Nizam. Afterwords little has been done to revamp the drainage system. With every rain you see the manholes overflowing throwing out all sewage outside on to the roads. There are colonies in Hyderabad where the sewage water is seen overflowing on to the roads making life of the citizens miserable.There are several cases of sewage polluting the drinking water. to cite few cases viz., Kavadiguda, Santhosh nagar in Hyderabad.
What is being done under swacchh Bharat Program to improve the existing drainage systems? more  
Earning from waste is more important then just treating the waste.. Setting Biogas Plant will help to improve Government Income. more  
The local elected councilors and corporation staff should go round the places once in a week and be made responsible for removal of wastes in time. more
