Imphal, January 12 2019: Green Manipur, a campaign organised by Radiant Group with the intention to reduce noise and air pollution in the State was inaugurated at Radiant e-ride showroom, Ghari, today. Speaking as the chief guest of the event, Manipur Pollution Control Board Chairman, Laishram Radhakishore Singh said that Manipur which used to be a pollution free State 20-30 years ago has become a contributor of pollutants in our environment which is sign of warning. Urging the public to support the initiative taken up by the Radiant Group to make the environment healthy and pollution free, he cautioned that degradation of environment has wiped out many species of plants and animals from the surface of the earth and human too may become extinct if sincere initiatives are not taken up at the earliest. All the Diesel run auto-rickshaws that are emitting pollution beyond permissible level should be banned and those in danger level must be arrested, he said and suggested that if all such auto are replace by E-Rickshaw, air pollution can be controlled at ease as the model doesn't produce any smoke or noise. Radiant Group, managing director, Nepram Romeo Singh also attended the event as functional president.
