Foundation of Assam Hills Medical College laid

From a Correspondent

DIPHU, Jan 19: Assam Health and Family Welfare Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma today laid the foundation stone of the Assam Hills Medical College and Research Institute at Bagmara in Diphu in presence of MP Biren Singh Engti, State HAD Minister Khorsing Engti, Parliamentary Secretary Bidya Sing Engleng, MLA Mansing Rongpi and others. The foundation stone of the medical institution was supposed to be laid by Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi, who could not attend the ceremony due to the inclement weather.

Addressing the gathering, Sarma said that the Assam Hills Medical College and Research Institute would be the fourth new medical college in the State that needed at least a new medical college at an interval of ten years in order to face the challenges on the health care front. The cost of the new medical college at Dihpu, according to official sources, would be around Rs 300 crore, and the college was supposed to be completed in 36 moths with facilities like 300 beds, an air-conditioned lecture hall, a modern library, intake capacity of 100 students and absorbing about 1,500 youths as employees, besides 486 nurses and 450 grade IV staff.

  1. Its a very good news to all of us! But the name of the said medical college is not fair, I want the authority of Assam to change the name as DIPHU MEDICAL COOLLEGE OR should be named by its place where the college is suppose to be constructed like the other medical colleges in ASSAM.
    And I request to all the intellectual people of KARBI ANGLONG to look upon the matter sincerely. KARDOM

    its true,its totally unfair with the name and why no one is opposing this.this is only a trick in demoralizing the demand of statehood for eg,earlier even the names of some places were changed to non-karbi names,if we really want autonomy than we need to be strong from the root level.and why the people are demanding autonomous state within the state,are they still unconcious that its just like we are digging our own graves.we need to be on always clear about our stand.and the most important thing is whatever we demand for the timing,our door for the separate state should always remain widely open.

    Open your eyes to the games that the state govt. is playing on us.The govt. is fooling the people and they will continue to do so if we do not stand up to it.The naming of the medical college is also one such game which we will lose if we do not stand up to change it.KARDOM.

    I totally agree. The name should be changed to Diphu Medical college or Karbi Hills medical college. Like the other medical colleges of Assam which are named after the name of the place, i request the medical authority to change the name of the medical college from “Assam Hills Medical College” to “Karbi Hills Medical College” or “Diphu Medical College”.
