Smriti Irani also summoned officials from Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) when she came across a blocked drain and asked them to do their duty properly.

Irani advised and asked all the students to take part in the cleanliness drive. After the drive, while hundreds of students kept cleaning the basti, she went to the DUSU Office in the University and discussed reforms and related matters with ABVP Office bearers. Meanwhile, many passerby students gathered outside the DUSU office and they later thanked Smriti Irani for her initiative of scrapping off Four Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP).
