Meghalaya: AL Hek dedicates new health sub centres as Christmas gift
SHILLONG: The Meghalaya Health Minister AL Hek on Wednesday inaugurated two health sub centres at Rangmaw in Mawkyrwat, South West Khasi Hills and Lyngkien in Mylliem, East Khasi Hills district.
The minister dedicated the newly constructed health sub-centres as ‘Christmas gifts’ to the people of the two constituencies.
The inauguration functions were held in the presence of PHE Minister and Mawkyrwat MLA Renikton Lyngdoh Tongkhar and C&RD Minister and Mylliem MLA, Hamletson Dohling.
Hek said the Rangmaw sub-centre is the first government project in the history of the state to be completed within a span of one year.
The foundation stone was laid on November 5, last year. “As far as I can remember in my five consecutive terms as an elected representative, this is the first government project which has been completed within a very short span of time,” Hek told reporters.
According to him, the Rangmaw sub centre was constructed at a cost of Rs 54 lakh and will cater to over 12 villages.
