Additional DC Palash Pratim Bora requested all the department employees to maintain discipline and come to office on time so that they can provide their services sincerely.

MLA Bora said that as the Sonapur District Hospital serves a huge population, every health worker should be responsible for providing the best health services. He said no one should die without medical care and treatment and hence, all should do their respective duties.
Bora assured that very soon he would take necessary action for engagement of required manpower at the District Hospital and make it fully operative.
Hazarika requested the health workers, government employees and public to work in harmony so that a conducive environment exists and services could be rendered to the public in the best way possible.
