'Great, green and trashy...' Denmark diplomat shares video of garbage dumped on service road; NDMC takes swift action

In a new video, the Danish diplomat said, ‘the heroes from NDMC listened to this, not a complaint, just a kind of cry’ and cleaned the service lane.

Denmark's diplomat to India, H E Freddy Svane, on Wednesday posted a video on social media showing a service road full of garbage. The road falls in between the Danish and Greek embassies in New Delhi. Soon after, he posted another video of the New Delhi Municipal Corporation's (NDMC) swift action, which Svane said he is proud of.

The video on X (formerly Twitter) was captioned: “Lovely and green New Delhi. Many words but no action. Saddened by this," and had tagged Denmark in India, Chief Minister Office Delhi and L-G Delhi office.

In the video, Svane was seen on the road full of trash and was heard calling New Delhi “great, green and trashy".

“This used to be a service lane, but you see, it is just full of trash, and people come here to do whatever they like to do here," he said in the video.

The Danish diplomat also hoped that someone would see the video and take some action on it. “No more nice words, just actions, my friend," he said while ending the video with a “dhanyawad (Thank you)" in Hindi.

Several netizens reacted to the video and said the entire Delhi is struggling with waste management issues.  

“Not only the diplomatic area, but the entire city of Delhi urgently requires a comprehensive initiative to address its waste management issues. The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) seems to be operating without direction, resulting in a chaotic situation. It appears that there is a lack of cohesive planning among Delhi's authorities on how to effectively manage waste. At this rate, there is a risk of Delhi becoming one of the largest junkyards in the world," one user commented.

“Just a suggestion you have marked wrong people here unfortunately that’s how the system works in India it’s NDMC which is responsible for this work and it works under central govt headed by Modi so please mark it to PMO India," another suggested. 

However, in his latest video, Svane said, “the heroes from NDMC listened to this, not a complaint, just a kind of cry," and cleared the service lane.  

"Why should we leave such a beautiful lane, a service lane full of trash? And now these great people took action, that is fantastic. This is about pointing at an issue not complaining. I am so proud that NDMC took action within a few minutes," he added.
