New Delhi: The Prime Minister Narendra Modi's cleanliness drive called Swachh Bharat Abhiyan suffered a serious blow on Tuesday after the Comptroller and Auditor General's (CAG) latest report slammed the government for running an ineffective cleanliness mechanism.

The dissatisfaction level seems to be increasing every passing day as the new machines and equipments failed to keep the stations clean. If this wasn't enough, the report also refers to the Railway Minister, Suresh Prabhu's budget speech where he talked about ramping up the security. However,the CAG has also concluded that nothing much has been done to improve the security at various stations that the CAG picked randomly.
