The Meghalaya government is all set to take major decisions with regard to the setting up of three medical colleges in the state.
Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on Wednesday informed that the major decisions will be announced during the upcoming Cabinet meeting, which will be held on Friday.
“We have been working on this for the last many months. In fact, it started in the last term itself but the day after tomorrow, we will be making some major announcements. The health minister will make the announcement after we have passed it in the cabinet,” he said.
Sangma said that the government will be announcing its plan for at least three medical colleges.
“We will be putting in a timeline on how long it will take and at the same time the money that is going to be spent on it and the working mechanism in which it will happen. With the completion of these three medical colleges which are going to be there, I am sure we are going to be able to produce almost more than what we are getting today and very much in the comfort of our own State,” he added.
The chief minister said that the health minister has been very particular on this as it required financial interventions which had to be done at his level.
“We have done that last week and now it is only a cabinet note which is waiting to be approved,” he said while adding that this again will be a major step to ensure overall human resource requirement that is there will be met in a much planned manner.
