The mural painting was created by artist Sentiyanger Longkumer of Wandering Minds. 

Speaking at the inaugural programme, Yaden while lauding DMC he said that the initiative of DMC project “A better Dimapur” has been witnessing innovative ways of discouraging waste.

Acknowledging that littering has become part of “our” habit which will take time, he said if each one took the responsibility of one’s action then things will change and work together work to find a solution. 

Delivering short speech, DMC administrator Moa Sangtam, mentioned that the idea behind the project was to encourage everyone to come together and contribute to make Dimapur a better place.

Pointing out that water and toilet facilities were basic, he said that such initiative should be lauded by all. He also called upon the gathering saying that in the last few years community people have come together in various ways for good and to be appreciated. He added that one should inculcate the idea and not solely depend on the government itself.
