CMC Connect lauds state govt’s prompt move

Christian Medical College (CMC) Connect has expressed gratitude to state chief minister Neiphiu Rio and minister for PWD (housing and mechanical), Tongpang Ozukum for responding to its request to allot a plot of land in view of the problems faced by patients who travel to Vellore for medical treatment.
In a press release, CMC Connect convenor Hosheto Achumi and co-convenor Dr. Aomangyang Walling stated that at a meeting on December 21, 2021 held in Dimapur they discussed difficulties faced by patients and attendants in securing affordable and decent accommodation in Vellore.
Noting that most North Eastern states had their own rest houses with designated government officers in place, CMC Connect said it decided to approach the state government to urgently look into the matter.
Representatives of the group met the chief minister on February 1 and handed a letter to the chief minister of Tamil Nadu, M.K. Stalin, requesting for a land to be allotted for the purpose of setting up a rest house for patients from Nagaland.
In this regard, the body expressed appreciation to the CM of Tamil Nadu for his positive response “to the extent of identifying a plot of land in Vellore the very next day.”
While acknowledging the state chief minister for his concern and Tongpang Ozukum for travelling to Chennai and Vellore, CMC Connect expressed hope that the genuine need of the patients would soon be materialised.
Further, it called upon the public to pray for early completion of the project.
