APYC slams poor condition of general hospital

AALO, Aug 23: Arunachal Pradesh Youth Congress (APYC) president Geli Ete has expressed concern over the poor condition of the general hospital here and called for improving it.
Ete, who is on his maiden tour of West Siang district after being appointed the APYC president, visited the hospital with his team on Tuesday, and found that the newly-constructed blood bank building there is not upto the mark and the condition of the male and female wards is poor.
He requested the district’s health administration to improve the hospital’s infrastructure. He sought installation of an MRI machine, proper functioning of the ultrasound unit, installing a generator in the hospital, and posting child and ENT specialists there.
APYC members took out a rally in the town, and later gathered at Congress Bhavan, where Ete exhorted youths to join mainstream politics and serve the state.
He emphasized on the need to stop drug abuse which he said was on the rise in West Siang, and asked the police to keep strict vigil on drug peddlers.
The APYC president also visited Paya village, where he alleged that although fund for the construction of a bridge there was sanctioned during the Congress government’s time, the bridge is yet to be constructed.
The APYC also threatened to launch a movement against the PWD and the health department.
