LONGDING, June 29: Local MLA Thangwang Wangham today announced to sponsor educational expenses of candidates who qualify to join Sainik School and urged parents of eligible candidates of his assembly constituency to apply for the entrance test scheduled on July 22 next.
It is worth mentioning here that he also has been sponsoring UPSC aspirants since last many years. As education and health have been his priority areas, he has borne medical expenses worth lakhs of many patients from time to time.
Establishment of opium de-addiction centre, which has successfully freed many people from the clutches of opium within the span of few months, is among his noteworthy steps to improve health scenario.
“As an elected representative, I have invested a lot in infrastructural development, mostly of schools and hospitals. But now my focus is on human resource development. Even state-of–the-art infrastructures will be useless if we can’t produce a single qualified person from our area,” he said with conviction.
“Present Govt under the leadership of dynamic Chief Minister Pema Khandu believes in no-nonsense governance. Naharlagun medical college (TRIHMS) and Sainik School at Niglok are remarkable achievements of the present Govt, which would change state’s health and education scenario in a significant way,” he said.
