Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s auspicious mission “Swaach Bharat Abhiyan” which was officially launched all over the country on October 2, last year is a total flop show here in the state of Manipur. The country witness Narendra Modi sweeping the garbage on public place when the auspicious to keep India clean was officially launched on the day at Rajghat in New Delhi. The mission was launched as a mark of respect and honour to the Father of the Nation –Mahatama Gandhi on his birth anniversary. People of the country observed the birth anniversary of Mahatama Gandhi as “Cleanliness Day”.
As observed across the nation, Manipur observed National Cleanliness Day on October 2 this year to commemorate the birth anniversary of Mahatama Gandhi . The day was marked here in Imphal with government functionaries and several civil organization conducting social service like cleaning of drains, roads, plantation of trees and organizing awareness campaign for keeping the surrounding clean and tidy.
October 2 has gone, and it is 8 days since. Observing the National Cleanliness Day or Prime Minister’s Narendra Modi’s “Swaach Bharat Abhiyan” seem to have lost its significance here in the state of Manipur.  
Most of the programme conducted in connection with the Modis’ auspicious Swaach Bharat Mission or in commemoration to the birth anniversary of Mahatama Gandhi turn out to be another show off garner popularity. For sixty six years, the state joined the nation in observing Gandhi Jyenti and for one year the government follow the Modi’s auspicious Mission to keep the surrounding clean and tidy but there is no such place in Imphal which is clean and tidy. The Nambul River which runs in the heart of Imphal city is no less than a dumping place of garbage. The huge amount of money spend for constructing retaining wall at both side of the Nambul River from Samusang to Keishampat Birdge turns as waste as the effort do not help in keeping the River clean.
The state now gears up for another Sangai Festival to attract the foreign and domestic tourist from across the globe and country. Much money has been spent to the beautification works of Kangla Moth. Now the government will spend another huge amount will be spend buying bloomed flowers to place on the road median. Yet, there seem no hopes to see the tourist crossing the Sanjenthong Bridge or clean rivers, forget about the filthy roads at Nagamapal and Khwairambandh Keithel area where the famous three Ima Keithel are located. 
Shopkeepers and vendor women at Khwairamband Keithel are often blamed for the mess in the heart of Imphal. But these shopkeepers and vendor women said they are left with no choice but to pile up the wastage on the roadside as Imphal Municipality Council authority had never render their duty properly.
“The workers of the IMC picks the garbage for name sake only, they never care to keep the place clean”, this was what has been told to anybody who talk about the dirt in the area.
Government authority too spent money on awareness or constructing some sort of infrastructure when called for but almost most of the works taken up do not sustain and happened as a gold mine for some few bureaucrats and politicians.
When Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s auspicious project Swaach Bharat Abhiyan is the talk of the country, the show here in Imphal is a total flop. May be because, Narendra Modi is BJP and our Chief Minister Okram Ibobi is Congress.
