Imphal, Sep 1: Rilram Area Maring Organisation (RAMO) strongly opposed the decision of the State government to hand over Rilram Centre Public Health Centre (PHC) to one private NGO (New Life Trust), said a press release issued by RAMO.
It said that Rilram Centre PHC is the one & only health centre in and around Rilram area covering around 20 Maring villages and was upgraded to PHC from PHSC in 2011.
It further added that the new building of the PHC was constructed in 2011 but was left incomplete till date as the remaining funds have not been released. Since then, the PHC having 15 staff is not functional due to the incomplete work of new building construction and lack of medical equipments.
As such, on behalf of the poor villagers of the area, RAMO appealed the State Govt and the concerned authority to make the PHC fully functional by releasing the funds for construction of the building and also provide the other requirements at the earliest.
