Manipur Launches Various Campaigns Ahead of Environment Day

Manipur Environment Day
Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh, alongside various civic bodies across the state, has launched multiple initiatives to enhance the cleanliness of Imphal city and its surrounding towns. These efforts are part of a broader commitment to ensuring a healthy environment for all residents.

Chief Minister’s Inspection and Involvement

On Sunday, Chief Minister N Biren Singh personally inspected several key locations as part of the cleanliness drive. These sites included the historic Kangla Fort, Ima Markets (Thangal and Paona Keithels), and Naga Nullah. The inspection underscored the government’s commitment to maintaining these important landmarks and public spaces.
In the heart of Imphal city, the Manipur Fire Service Department was actively involved in the cleanup campaigns. Their participation highlights the collaborative effort between various government departments to tackle waste management and promote a cleaner environment.

Broader Waste Management Campaign

The state’s initiatives align with a massive waste management campaign set to be launched nationwide on June 5, coinciding with World Environment Day. In anticipation of this, local civic bodies have already begun conducting their cleanup campaigns, aiming to make cities garbage-free and more livable.
Chief Minister N Biren Singh expressed his enthusiasm for the campaign on Twitter, stating, “As we approach World Environment Day, I am pleased to participate in a community social service event dedicated to environmental preservation.” His message emphasized the importance of individual and collective efforts in protecting the environment.

World Environment Day 2024: Focus on Land Restoration

World Environment Day, celebrated annually on June 5, promotes awareness and action for environmental protection. This year’s theme is “Land restoration, desertification, and drought resilience,” under the slogan “Our Land. Our Future.” The campaign in Manipur reflects this global focus, aiming to restore land and build resilience against environmental challenges.
The Chief Minister commended the officials of the Manipur Government for their proactive role in the drive, along with local clubs and youth organizations. He highlighted the importance of the environment as a precious resource that needs nurturing and preservation. “I urge you to contribute in any way you can – be it through planting more trees, reducing plastic usage, or adopting eco-friendly practices in your daily life,” he added.
Supported by numerous non-governmental organizations, businesses, and government entities, the campaign is a testament to the collaborative effort required to achieve environmental sustainability. This initiative also represents a significant part of the United Nations’ outreach efforts to support the environment globally.
The drive in Manipur, led by the Chief Minister and supported by various stakeholders, is a promising step towards a cleaner and healthier environment. The focus on waste management and the upcoming nationwide campaign underscores the importance of sustained efforts in environmental preservation. As the state gears up for World Environment Day, the initiatives in Imphal serve as an inspiring model for other regions to follow.
