Shillong, Sept 29: The KSU has sought the intervention of health minister James K Sangma to complete Shillong Medical College.
“The union urges your swift intervention to expedite the work for completion of the Shillong Medical College which would cater to the aspirations of the ever increasing number of students in the medical field,” Chairman of the KSU Education Cell Raymond Kharjana said.
In a memorandum to Sangma, the KSU leader said the delay in the completion of Shillong Medical College since its foundation in 2017 (in picture) at Reid Chest hospital, Mawbah, by the then state government and subsequent shifting of venue to Umsawli, New Shillong is disheartening and shows lack of commitment by the government.
The KSU leader also expressed concern over awarding development work of the Shillong Medical College to the Kolkata based firm, Kali Pradip Choudhuri (KPC) though the firm has a tainted image in tax evasion.
The KSU wanted the authorities to revisit the agreement signed with the firm currently engaging in development work.
