IMPHAL, March 26: The United Committee Manipur (UCM) has submitted a memorandum to Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh demanding action on the alleged pathetic condition of the Community Health Centre, Moreh.
“In the light of the vision for international township at Moreh under your able leadership, the UCM would like to draw your kind attention on the ground reality of the pathetic condition of the Community Health Centre, Moreh for immediate drastic action to rejuvenate the horrible health system prevailing in the most sensitive and strategic town of Moreh on the International Indo-Myanmar Border,” UCM said in its memorandum.
“The haunted community Health Centre, Moreh has become the vivid example of total system failure in the far-flung hill areas of Manipur due to lack of administration and no governance, in spite of the coveted prize given to the government of Manipur by Government of India for the best healthcare system among the smaller states very recently. It has become the greatest joke of the century,” it further said.
UCM in its memorandum further demanded proportionate doctors and staff for the 50 bedded Moreh Hospital, sufficient number of quarters for doctors and staffs, construction of septic tank and water reservoir at the earliest, installation of necessary basic equipments for the hospital and separate security personnel for the hospital.
