Assam CM directs senior officials to fill manpower shortage at the earliest :-
Guwahati: Chief Minister Himanata Biswa Sarma paid a visit to Gauhati Medical College and Hospital on Saturday and took stock of the preparedness of the new super-speciality unit in the run-up to its scheduled inauguration on May 10.
The Chief Minister claimed that the upcoming state-of-the-art hospital, which will cost nearly Rs.180 crores and will serve the requirements of everyone in the state, is one of his dream projects.
He said that the super speciality hospital built for the best-of-class treatments in the fields of neurology, neurosurgery, cardiology and cardiac-surgery should be able to attract patients not only from the state but also from nations of Southeast Asia through its world-class services.
Sharma further added all concerned to ensure that all medical equipment become operational so that the new state-of-the-art hospital can perform to its full capacity from the day of its inauguration.
The CM also requested that senior officials in the health and family welfare department speed up the process of filling vacant physician and support staff positions, such as laboratory technicians and nurses. He also asked them to do everything possible to attract the greatest people in the sector.
He further asked them to make their best efforts to attract the best talent in the industry.
Previously, Chief Minister visited Chirang district Additional Superintendent of Police (Headquarter) Prakash Medhi and former minister and MLA Binod Gowala both undergoing treatment at Gauhati Medical College & Hospital, and wished them fast recovery, while assuring them of all support from the state government in their path to recovery.
It is worth mentioning that Prakash Medhi, posted as Additional SP (Headquarter) of Chirang district, sustained bullet injury during a gunfight with miscreants last Tuesday. In the gunfight, the police were able to neutralise two miscreants involved in the crime in and around the Indo-Bhutan border in Udalgiri.
