Tura, Feb 23: Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma has announced that the 15th Finance Commission has accorded sanction worth several hundred crores to Meghalaya which would go a long way in maintaining of rural roads and upliftment of health infrastructure.

The Chief Minister broke the story during a visit to Williamnagar, district headquarters of East Garo Hills on Tuesday to inaugurate a primary health center and lay the base for the construction of two new road projects connecting villages across the Simsang river.

The Chief Minister opened the doors to the newly constructed building of the Nengmandalgre health center in the presence of Tura Lok Sabha MP Agatha K Sangma, Williamnagar MLA Marcuise Marak, Rongjeng MLA Jim Sangma and local MDC of Williamnagar Denang T Sangma.

Constructed at a cost of approximately Rs 2.5 Crores, the Nengmandalgre health center will cater to the people of several villages across Simsang river in Williamnagar town.

At the same venue, the chief minister laid the foundation for two PMGSY mega road projects – a 35 km length road from Nengmandalgre to Daribokgre and another 7.82 km road from Cherangre to Sisobibra, that will include two RCC structure bridges.

Addressing the public at the event, the chief minister said that Meghalaya has been able to undertake several ambitious road projects in the State for the welfare of the people and the central government has been forthcoming in the release of central funds.

Conrad Sangma announced that the Government of India has accorded sanction of Rs 500 crores to the state from the 15th finance commission and this will go a long way in uplifting health infrastructure in the State.

He also revealed that another Rs 350 crore from the World Bank has also been accorded for Meghalaya.

“We are grateful to the Govt of India for accepting the recommendation of the 15th Finance Commission,” said the chief minister.

District Councils and municipals to receive funding: In what can be termed a major financial boost for the cash strapped district councils of the state, Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma informed that based on the 15th finance commission’s recommendations, the district councils and municipals in the State will soon be accorded financial sanction for initiating development and welfare projects.

The 15th FC has also accorded 500 crore rupees for maintenance of PMGSY roads in the state, added Sangma.

“Our government is aggressively pursuing the agenda of development and the inauguration of completed projects and foundation for new ones is a testimony of our commitment to the people unlike ‘election gimmicks’ of past governments.”

Tura Lok Sabha MP Agatha K Sangma also spoke at the program to inform about the increase of the union health budget by 10000 cr this year.

“The increase in the health budget will go a long way in creating better health care facilities and infrastructure in Garo Hills as well,” said Agatha as she lauded her brother and chief minister for his concerted effort to improve health infrastructure in the State.

Williamnagar legislator Marcuise Marak said that the state, particularly East Garo Hills, has been blessed with multiple projects under the Conrad Sangma government.
