A two-day Free Medical Camp cum Textbook Distribution Programme conducted at Sinakeithei village of Ukhrul district jointly organised by the Manipuri Students’ Federation (MSF), Sinakeithei Katamnao Long (SKL) and Regional Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) was concluded on Wednesday.
During the first day of the programme, study materials were distributed to students belonging to the underprivileged families and wheelchairs and hearing aids were also distributed to the specially abled persons, MSF stated in a release.
It stated that many people living in the interior parts of the hills districts are not getting the benefits given by the government under various schemes which totally contradict the government’s voice which claimed that the welfare schemes have reached every nook and corner of the state.
Pointing out the need of monitoring the functioning of health care centres in the hill districts by the authority of the government, MSF also mentioned the need for dedication in their jobs by the officials who are posted in the far-flung areas of the hill districts.
Coming to the education sector in the hill districts, MSF pointed out that the number of teachers is outnumbered by the students. In this regard, it drew the attention of the Education minister to do the needful.
Stating that around 300 villagers from in and around the Sinakeithei Village were benefited from the medical camp, MSF expressed gratitude to RIMS authority, Social Welfare department, BOSEM and All Manipur Chemist and Druggist Association for lending their support during the camp and programme.
