SECHÜ ZUBZA, NOVEMBER 14

Minister of Social Welfare Kiyanilie Peseyie while lauding the Border Roads Task Force (BRTF) for reaching out to the villages with various welfare activities every now and then has underscored the need for more similar initiatives by the border roads organization in order to improve the overall well being of the people of the State. “The various activities undertaken by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) across the State will go a long way in sensitizing the general public of the values and principles the BRO stands for,” the minister said while inaugurating the free medical camp organized by the 15 BRTF under the aegis of Project Sewak at Sechü Zubza today.
“I am so pleased to see the BRO paying attention to the villagers to improve their well being and further to enhance their all round participation and preparation in welfare activities,” he added.
He was all praise for the BRO for taking up the noble initiative of conducting the medical camp on a very large scale.
While thanking the BRO for being there as and when needed keeping in mind the basic requirements and necessities of the villagers, Peseyie also expressed the hope that the facilities of the camp will be made good use of by the locals in ensuring a healthy and disease-free environment.
“To be getting a medical camp at your door step is surely a godsend initiative for Sechü Zubza and its neighbouring villages. It is truly a privilege as there are instances where villagers, especially in the interior areas, have to travel long distances to avail medical treatment which in return tax them heavily,” he said.
Underlining that health concerns remain an area that still has much ground to cover in the State, especially the interior rural areas, he said such medical camps can bridge the gap until institutional coverage improves in the State.
“Let us continue to work tirelessly to bring respite and comfort to those in distress,” he said while he also urged the public to extend their cooperation for the success of any programmes organized by the BRO.
“Let us all join hands together to render our support and cooperation to the Border Roads Organisation as it moves ahead to fulfill its aims and objectives,” Peseyie urged while wishing the BRTF with much success in all its endeavours.
A total of over thousand patients from Sechü Zubza and neighbouring villages were screened and given free medicines including laboratory investigations during the medical camp that lasted from 8 am to 4 pm. Services of six doctors from the BRO catered to the needs of the patients comprising old, young and school children.
Lunch and tea was also provided to all who attended the medical camp held at Sechü Zubza village panchayat hall.
The medical camp was also attended by Chief Engineer, Project Sewak, Vinod Kumar and Commandant, 15 BRTF, Col. SP Yadava, government officers and public leaders among others.
Meanwhile, the Sechü Zubza Village Council chairman Neikuo Sechü has thanked the 15 BRTF for organizing the free medical camp. He also requested it to initiate similar programmes in the near future.
