Imphal, February 19 2017: A flower plantation cum 'Let our town blooms with flowers' initiative has been taken up by Facebook group Letz Paint the Earth Green in collaboration with Blooming Manipur in Khwairamband Keithel this morning.
A good number of flowering and foliage plants were also hanged around the women market complex while different small sizes of ornamental plants were also planted under Bir Tikendrajit fly overbridge.
A member of Letz Paint the Earth Green said that such initiative is the need of the hour as it will make our town and market places neat and green.
Suggesting that women vendors must be encouraged to take care of the flowers, a shopper in Imphal town commented that the authorities concerned also must encourage and support those individuals who come forward for adoption of the flower plants to beautify the market areas.
Director N Gitkumar of Manipur Housing and Urban Development and Imphal Municipal Council Mayor S Sunil led the officials, volunteers of Blooming Manipur and Letz Paint the Earth Green participated in the drive.
Similar plantation drive was also taken up at Tumuyon Khullen, Senapati district and Chingmeirong Maning Leikai, Imphal on June 4 and September 11 last year.
