Manipur Pollution Control Board (MPCB) will bring out a detailed report on the causes and consequences of environmental damages and climate change affecting the rivers and lakes of the state by March 2018.
This was disclosed by MPCB Chairman Laishram Radhakishore Singh while addressing a souvenir releasing function held at the auditorium of Nupee Lal Memorial Complex in Imphal on Wednesday.
The official Souvenir titled “Eishu Nakhoigumna” releasing function was organised by the Saksham Manipur Prant 2018 as part of the Commemoration with Eye Donation Fortnight Campaign, 2017.
MLA Radhakishore also said the government will try its best in order to restore the conditions of the rivers and lakes which the people witnessed some years back. He also appealed to the people to extend necessary support and cooperation while developing the degraded environment system.
He also admitted that nature will harm man if man harms the nature. So we should use our natural resources wisely and sustainably, he added.
Stating that mass awareness on eye donation movement is required in the state, the sitting MLA from Oinam assembly constituency in Manipur’s Bishnupur district appealed to the people of the state to donate their eyes to the needy. Though some people are born disabled, their life and contributions are as much valuable as an able person and the important thing is to live together happily, sharing the gift of nature amongst all people, he said.
The day’s souvenir releasing function was also attended by Former MLA Khwairakpam Loken, President P Prafullo of Information Service Television, BJP Manipur Pradesh spokesperson S Joykumar and other dignitaries.
