DIMAPUR, June 5 - Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio today promised to launch a campaign for a clean and green Nagaland within three months.

Addressing a programme organised at the Nagaland Baptist Church Council convention centre in Kohima on the World Environment Day, Rio said the occasion �reinforces our commitment to protect the environment for a better future for all of us.� He maintained that the World Environment Day is the �people�s day for doing something locally, nationally or globally for Mother Earth.�

Asserting that the Government is committed to planting more trees for a green Nagaland, the Chief Minister called upon the youths and other people of the State to join the afforestation drive. A clean and green Nagaland would become a reality only with the active participation of all people, Rio stated.

On this year�s theme of the World Environment Day, �Beat Plastic Pollution�, the Chief Minister said plastic pollution poses the greatest environmental challenge. �We have to consider what changes we can make in our everyday lives to reduce the burden of plastic pollution on biodiversity and health,� he said.

Rio also pointed out that plastic has become a menace in Nagaland too, especially Kohima, Dimapur and other district headquarters, leading to choking of drains and gutters.

The Chief Minister further called upon everyone to commit to a plastic-free Nagaland by banning the use of plastic products in the State within six months. �Together we can make a difference by reducing the use of plastics and contribute to protecting the environment,� Rio said.
