MTLT endorses demand for repair of IMDH road

Mokokchung Town Lanur Telongjem (MTLT) has endorsed the demand for immediate repair of roads leading to Dr. Imkongliba Memorial District Hospital (IMDH).
Youth bodies of four wards (Penli, Majakong, Lijaba Lijen and Artang) under Mokokchung town on Tuesday expressed displeasure over deplorable road conditions and demanded immediate repair of district hospital road.
MTLT president Imnaonen Pongen and general secretary Imkongchuba Pongen stated that IMDH remained the first referral point for a majority of patients in Mokokchung town and even beyond.
It said that IMDH was also the biggest healthcare institution in the district where a majority of patients seek and get medical help.
Under such circumstances, MTLT said it was “appalling” to note the “apathetic attitude” of the responsible authorities turning a blind eye and leaving the approach roads—one from Sewak Gate and the other from Police Point to IMDH—neglected for so long. “It is totally unacceptable and no excuse can justify such apathy,” MTLT stated.
Expending full support to the representation submitted to the DC Mkokchung by youth bodies, the organisation lauded the four youth associations “for their noble understanding and initiative” for the wellbeing of the society. MTLT affirmed to render all possible support in the just demand of the public.
