For cleaning of solid waste particles from Loktak lake and Nambul river, Central government has approved Rs 400 crores and 100 crores respectively, this was stated by chairman of Manipur pollution control broad (MPCB) K. Radhakishore.

While addressing the reporters, office in connection with the one day sansitisation workshop on biological waste to the students of Regional Institution of Medical Sciences (RIMS) Radhakishore said, “Central government has sanctioned the amount for two projects for cleaning waste from Loktak and Nabul. The projects will be carried out for 15 years.”

“Presently, one of the concerns is proper treatment and disposal of the biological solid waste products from government and private hospital of the state. Most of the private hospitals do not have proper dumping site and proper treatment of the solid waste,” he added.
