MP, GAF express concern over delay in start of academic session at medical college

ITANAGAR, Jan 18: Reacting to the report of delay in starting the academic session of the TRIHMS Medical College, Lok Sabha MP Ninong Ering on Thursday expressed concern over the situation.
Sharing his concern on microblogging site Twitter, Ering wrote, ‘Immediate steps must be taken on this issue.’
The Green Arunachal Foundation (GAF) has also expressed displeasure over the ‘lackadaisical attitude of the government’ towards important development projects like the medical college and the Hollongi greenfield airport.
‘The government has never shown sincerity to implement these two projects. Just to keep the public happy they issue some press release and try to portray as if they are sincere. As per the report, the file for recruitment of faculty is pending at the CM’s desk. Unless recruitment of faculty is done and infrastructure work is fast-tracked, the Medical Council of India will not give approval, which will effectively kill the medical college dream,’ GAF Chairman Takam Tatung stated in a release.
Tatung predicted that the greenfield airport project in Hollongi would meet the same fate. He accused the government of ‘deliberately delaying paperwork related to the medical college and the airport to keep a section of the state underdeveloped for their political gain.’
