During the programme, Ginsuanhau said that the PHC took 10 years to complete due to shortage of funds. He said that the project started in 2011 with funding from MDS but could not finish in time. However, it has been finally inaugurated and will be much helpful for Singngat CHC which will be upgraded to a sub-district hospital as assured by the chief minister.

He further said that his main objective is to provide proper health service, road connectivity, power supply and water to the people. He continued that BRTF will soon work on the road at Singngat 33/11 KV power plant at Suangdoh and Behiang for which an approval has already been received.

Pawan Yadav said that the proposed sub-district hospital at Singngat will be upgraded to 30 beds from the existing eight beds and assured to make it possible at the earliest after consultation with the MLA.
