Callous socialites worst offenders
The elite class including officers, lawyers, doctors and even politicians, were found dumping garbage at undesignated places by an opposition party in Imphal, who raised a call-attention motion on the matter in the assembly. In reaction to the dumping of garbage at undesignated places in Imphal city, Chief Minister Okram Ibobi has stated that his government is contemplating action against the offenders.

MLA L. Ibomcha Singh from the opposition also mentioned that they have photos of elite people coming in cars and dumping garbage at undesignated places in the city, while suggesting that cleanliness and hygiene-related subjects be included in the school syllabus.

Since, the construction of the state-run solid waste management project in the Lameng area of Imphal West is yet to be completed, the city's garbage is currently being dumped at some sites on the outskirts. Responding to the motion, Ibobi Singh, who also holds the Manipur housing and urban development portfolio, suggested fanning out flying of squads and framing relevant laws to check the growing menace.

Stating that the state capital produces around 100 MT of solid waste daily, the chief minister appealed to ministers and legislators to frequently visit the solid waste management project site and press for its timely completion.
