Health sub-centres inaugurated

ITANAGAR, Nov 24: MLA Jambey Tashi on Saturday inaugurated the health sub-centres in Kharteng and Mangnam villages in Lungla subdivision of Tawang district.
At both places, the MLA appealed to the people to maintain personal hygiene and keep away from tobacco, alcohol and other intoxicants. He made a special request to the village heads and leaders to educate expecting mothers to go for institutional birth and avail the health benefits under various government schemes.

Tashi also asked the villagers to get enrolled for the Chief Minister’s Arogya Arunachal Scheme, and urged the educated youths to help the villagers in getting registered.
He informed that two more health sub-centres, in Muktur and Blet-Teng villages, are in the pipeline.
