Leading by example: Do as I say, not what I do?

If the periphery of where the lawmakers of the state sit, every few months, has not been able to implement waste management efficiently, then can we expect the city to efficiently manage waste?

The recently concluded assembly session turned into a brainstorming session on everything from traffic to waste management but well, amidst the discussions, one glaring oversight remained: the dirt in their backyard.
Yes, we’re talking about the Legislative assembly itself. It seems disposing of leftover food and plates in a dustbin are just too much to ask when it’s the hallowed halls of legislation we’re talking about.
One can’t help but wonder, if the immediate vicinity of the assembly itself struggles with such elementary waste management practices, what hope is there for the rest of the city?
Perhaps it’s time for our leaders to consider leading by example, starting with their domain. After all, as the saying goes, actions truly do speak louder than words.
