The foundation stone for the new Baghmara Civil Hospital building in South Garo Hills was laid by Meghalaya chief minister Conrad K. Sangma Thursday.
Laying the foundation stone for the additional building of the 100-bedded hospital, the Meghalaya CM said, “It has been the commitment of the government to give special attention to areas, which has remained neglected.”
“South Garo Hills is one of the districts that have been accorded thrust so that the region can catch up with the pace of development with other districts of the state,” Conrad Sangma said.
Meghalaya Minister of Health AL Hek, government chief whip Marcuise Marak, Siju Rongara MLA Rakkam A Sangma and Baghmara MLA Samuel Sangma also attended the foundation laying ceremony.
Health Minister AL Hek said the project will be completed within the specified 24-month timeframe.
He expressed dissatisfaction with the project backlog and promised that this government would ensure that the projects have been completed on time.
Hek said the new building would be dedicated to Lordsigh Sangma, a former MLA.
