Should the Army be used to clean trash left behind by tourists and others? It depends on whom you ask. According to the government, this is a key part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan which includes all citizens and therefore includes the Army as well. On the other side, senior veterans of the Army feel this is part of an effort to downgrade the importance of the armed forces and make them do something that they neither trained for nor signed up to do. Either way, an order has come. Some of the places where this is happening are Kedarnath, Rudraprayag, Joshimath, Harsil and Gaurikund in Uttarakhand. Is it fair to ask the Army to clean up garbage left behind by tourists in high-altitude areas?
