Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and MoS (independent charge) for Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan jointly performed Bhumi Pujan for a multi-specialty hospital to be built at Rojabari in Sivasagar district of Assam today. The duo also ceremoniously launched the construction work of Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology (RGIPT) to come up at Sivasagar district. The multi-specialty hospital will be built at sprawling land of 50 acre and the proposed 362 bedded hospital will be built at a cost of Rs 312 crore. Speaking on the occasion, Mr Sonowal said during the last 11 months, the present state government has been resolutely working to uplift the poor section of the society. He also said in order to materialise the dream of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the state government has been relentlessly striving to achieve 'Sabka Saath Sabka Bikash'. Mr Sonowal said Mr Modi has started a new trend by abolishing VIP culture and promoting an ambiance where "every person is important". Acknowledging AASU's role in bringing the petroleum institution to fruition, Mr Sonowal said it is the solemn duty of each and every individual to maintain the institution as the best in the country. While thanking Mr Pradhan for his role in releasing oil royalty, Mr Sonowal said the Centre's action has boosted the state's economy. Mr Pradhan, while speaking on the occasion, said it has been a long standing demand of the people of Assam for an Institute of Petroleum Technology and a multi-specialty hospital which would cater to the needs of large part of Assam. He also informed that Babasaheb Ambedkar Vaidyakiya Prathisthan has been entrusted with the responsibility of running the multi-specialty hospital in partnership with the ONGC, so that quality medical facilities can be provided to the poorest of the poor at affordable cost. He also announced that the new hospital will be named after Swargadeo Sukaphaa who immortalised the Ahom Kings' contributions in establishing Assam where all sections of the people can lead a life of dignity and equality. On the occasion, he announced that another medical college will be set up in Sivasagar with 60:40 partnership. He also promised of starting nursing schools from the Petroleum Ministry at different locations like Digboi, Duliajan, Numaligarh, Bongaigaon and Guwahati. Mr Pradhan also said that there had been resentment among the youths of the State for not getting the dues from the petroleum resources extracted from the State. But under the leadership of Modi, our government is providing the due share for its resources and developing the entire region at a fast pace. Member of Parliament Kamakhya Prasad Tasa, Rameswar Teli, MLA Jogen Mohan, Tapan Gogoi, Kushal Duori, Chairman cum Managing Director, ONGC D.K. Sarraf and a host of other dignitaries were present on the occasion.UNI SG AD1849
