Demand to upgrade Byrnihat PHC to CHC

Nongpoh, Aug 1: Jirang MLA Sosthenes Sohtun has sought to upgrade Byrnihat primary health centre as a community health centre for it to provide better healthcare facilities to the people of the area.
“This is a long pending demand of local people of Byrnihat area and to fulfill the desire of the people, the government has to upgrade the PHC,” Sohtun told reporters on Saturday.
He said he also submitted a petition to Chief Minister Conrad Sangma and Health Minister AL Hek on the demand as health workers in the PHC are overburdened as it caters to about 50,000 residents.
Pointing out that since it is located along the national highway he said the health centre would be a blessing in cases of road accidents and others.
