The FKJGP urged Health Minister Mr Alexander for setting up Sub-Centre at Langpih area

Shillong, August 05: The Federation of Khasi Jaintia and Garo People (FKJGP) today sent memorandum to Meghalaya Health Minister Mr Alexander Hek demanding for setting up health Sub-Centre in Langpih area under Nonglang PHC in West Khasi Hills District.

The FKJGP of Langpih Area Unit in the memorandum  mention all the correspondent that the organization sent earlier from the FKJGP Langpih Area Unit requesting to set up a Sub-Centre at Langpih area.

The FKJGP mention that according to their information, the Government had taken up with the matter and proposal had been done from its side (letter No.NLG/PHC/1/2015-16/86 Dated 02/07/1/2019 for setting up the new Sub-Centre at Langpih, and also according to the Letter No.HSM/BLDG/SC/51/2015/11054 dated 20/08/2015 the Government had approved the said proposal.

But sadly from the District Medical & Health Officer West Khasi Hills District, in this Letter No.NST/11-104-2016-17/5439 dated 15/09/2016 it clearly point out that no signs of any action has been taken for setting up of the said Sub-Centre at Langpih.

The FKJGP said that Langpih covers many villages with a vast population and it is also in the remotest part of Meghalaya and the nearest Health Care Centre is around 20kms and it is very difficult for people to get there as the road condition is not so good.

As a remainder the FKJGP Langpih Area Unit had for many years approached the concern authorities at the District Level through our letters.

This time they hope that the Government will take up this matter in speeding up in setting up of the said Sub-Centre at Langpih as this will bring a great blessing to the people of this area. As we know that “Health is wealth.” So we hope and pray that you and your Department will take up this matter seriously as you help regarding this matter will be remembered by the people of this area forever. The memorandum was sign by president Mr Spilin Lyndoh and Mr Marbor Nonglang general secretary FKJGP Langpih area unit.
