Thomas Heinrich Schmöckel from Greven in Germany says the love for nature drives him to keep the environment clean wherever he could.
A cleanliness campaign supported by NEC under the SWACCHTA Scheme was held at Ibudhou Marjing, Heingang, Imphal East on Sunday.
The cleanliness drive was conducted under the theme ‘Your Waste Your Responsibility’
The cleanliness drive was organised by the Educational Gym Club Wangbal part II.
IMC Lokeshor said the drive has been continuing at different markets, including Kwakeithel, Lamlong, Khwairamband and others.
The main objective of the drive is to keep not just Imphal City clean but the surrounding hills and bushes as well from the waste materials tossed out by passersby.
Range forest officer Kakching Naorem Munal Meitei said that although the observation was started in 1965 worldwide, the target had not been achieved so far.
