Arunachal to have two guest houses in Assam

By The Assam Tribune

ITANAGAR, Sept 2 � Considering the long felt need of the students studying outside and poor patients who have to go outside the State for treatment, the Arunachal Pradesh government is contemplating to construct State guest houses at Dibrugarh and Guwahati in Assam besides Vellore in Tamil Nadu.

Announcing the decision, state Finance Minister Kalikho Pul today said there have been repeated demands for such guest houses in the past, which could earlier not be materialised for fund crunch.

�But the welfare government under Chief Minister Jarbom Gamlin�s leadership took this bold step,� he said while interacting with the media.

Realising the pressing necessity of such infrastructure for the students who spend huge amount of money on accommodation for their studies and the same fate of the poor patients, the state government has decided to sanction Rs 17 crore for the Guwahati guest house and Rs 6 crore each for the Vellore and Dibrugarh guest houses despite its poor financial condition.

�Guwahati being the transit point for the rest of India, a multipurpose guest house will be built there for students and patients besides to accommodate VIPs and officers who go on tours via Guwahati,� he said.

Though comparatively small, the multi-utility guest house at Dibrugarh would serve the interests of the patients, students, officers and VIPs.

A large number of patients from the State go to Vellore for treatment at the Christian Medical College and Hospital for its better services at reasonable rates. The CMCH is a referral hospital for the State government. � PTI
