Biren calls for neat and clean Manipur
Imphal: Manipur chief minister N. Biren Singh distributed plastic drop boxes to local youth club volunteers at the chief minister’s secretariat gate on Saturday and appealed to the public against littering and disposing of plastic waste everywhere.
Biren distributed 22 plastic drop boxes out of 58 numbers donated by the Babina Group, UNACCO and BPCL Distributors Association.
Speaking to media persons on the sideline of the distribution event, the chief minister said it is part of the efforts to keep India neat and clean. This is a concerted effort of the Youth for Peace and Progress Manipur and prominent entrepreneurs and industrialists of the state towards making Manipur a plastic waste free state and lessen the problem of clogging drains and rivers due to plastic waste.
These plastic drop boxes will be installed at public places for people to dispose of their plastic bottles and wastes into these boxes so that the waste may be further recycled, the chief minister said.
Biren lauded BABINA Group of Companies chairman and managing director Dr Thangjam Dhabali Singh, UNACCO managing director Ningombam Irabanta, BPCL and all those involved for their endeavor.
Commending community involvement with local clubs coming out voluntarily to join in developmental works, the chief minister said development of a society begins with small efforts and further appealed to all to join in the movement to make Manipur a garbage-free state.
