The Lympung comprising of six localities-Mawkhar, Wahingdoh, Riatsamthiah, Umsohsun, Mission Compound and Wahthapbru, apprised the chief executive officer of SMB on this issue while demanding an immediate intervention on his side.

Further elaborating on the pathetic condition of Motphran area, LKHS president Drowning Dkhar said that the intolerant stench emitted out of the non-stop spill over of toilet water; from the existing public latrines have caused a health hazard to the pedestrians who have no alternative but to pass through the area.
