YUPIA May 13: Rajya Sabha member Nabam Rebia on Friday flagged of ambulances and bike ambulances for Tarasso and Mengio PHCs, in presence of DC Minga Sherpa, DMO Dr K Perme, Mengio EAC Tana Bapu, Tarasso CO Rome Mele among others.
Both Taraso and Mengio circles are considered to be among the few remote outposts of Papumpare district, with communication bottlenecks existing. With the intention of prioritizing medical facilities for these two remote circles, the DC conceptualized the idea of providing ambulances that can have off-roading capabilities to a certain extent.
With this objective, two numbers of ambulances were provided for PHC Taraso and Mengio.
Also, for the first time in the history of the state, two numbers of custom-built bikes with boxes for medical accessories were designed and worked out by the district administration.
Considering the low penetration of telecommunication in Taraso and Mengio, 8 sets of high-frequency walkie talkies were also distributed for both the PHCs.
The DC has provided a bike for Circle Office Taraso to deliver daks and other official works and a generator for EAC Mengio office.
Two brand new Futsal turfs are underway for Kimin and Sagalee, which would be operational by the end of May this year and a football gallery for Balijan ground has also been sanctioned and the work is under progress.
Sherpa, who is getting released from the state and would join Jammu & Kashmir this month, has requested all to use the facilities in best possible ways by the youths of the district. (DIPRO)
