ITANAGAR, Nov 02: Arunachal State Nursing School (ASNS) students facing untold suffering in present campus, particularly being flooded during rainy days, shifted to seven-storied Boria Tari Memorial Hospital (BTMH) in Papu Nallah on Friday at the initiative of H&FW Minister Alo Libang.
Libang immediately after taking charge of H&FW department during his visit to the ASNS on June 23 last was aghast to see the students living in a horrible condition with their hostel flooded, passage to hostel, all rooms and latrines submerged with dirty rain water. He had immediately shifted many students to women’s hostel of nearby Tomo Riba Institute of Health & Medical Science (TRIHMS) and Medical College, which had accommodation only for 35. Thus, he ultimately zeroed down to BTMH which would offer accommodation for their academic classes and hostel while the students would come to TRIHMS by APNS bus for practical classes.
The funds allocated by the state Govt would be utilized to build the hostel till then they would be living in BTMH, Libang reiterated today while talking to this daily, adding “they all are our children and their good health is equally our concern”.
Meanwhile, ASNS principal Boa Yani Taw, in a letter, has lauded the minister, H&FW top bureaucrats, and a host of others officers who facilitated the shifting of the students to BTMH with very suitable accommodation where regular academic classes would begin from November 5 next.
BTMH owner Dr Kartik Nishing, who retired as General Hospital (TRIHMS) chief medical superintendent while supervising shifting of the students said the classes would continue now without any hindrance.
