RRM organises eco-trekking for students
Imphal, May 22 (EMN): Royal Riders Manipur (RRM), a group of Royal Enfield riders in Manipur, organised an eco-trekking for students of Classes 3 to 6 at Langol foothill range in the outskirts of Imphal on Sunday.
Kh Raghumani Singh, Uripok MLA, flagged off the eco-trekking programme for the school children.
The eco-trekking was organised as part of RRMs month-long campaign to protect and conserve the environment locally known as ‘Mahousa Ima Ningsing Tha’ (month to remember Mother Nature) with special focus on local environment issues even though it was observed on the United Nations theme ‘Only one Earth.’
It may be mentioned that minister for Power, Forest, Environment and Climate Change Thongam Biswajit Singh inaugurated the month-long campaign on May 6 by flagging off a tree plantation campaign at Andro, CI College and Kangchup Chiru covering three districts – Imphal East, Bishnupur and Kangpokpi.
Our activities help at least in rejuvenating the green cover in some specific areas of Langol, Yaral Pat etc, a RRM functionary said.
With the motto “Serving with adventure”, RRM, which is Manipur’s most happening bike club with bullet bike riders belonging to diverse professionals, was formed with the motive to undertake charity events related to health, environment, child rights, disaster, communal harmony besides art and culture to create a “good biker” image.
They started to take up welfare programmes with their own contributions from across the region after their first ride towards Kuirei, a remote village in Manipur’s Ukhrul district for a free medical camp in April 2007.
