By Correspondent

ITANAGAR, May 3 - Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu today called on the Medical Council of India (MCI) president, Dr Jayshree Mehta, in New Delhi and strongly pitched for early operationalisation of the State�s first medical college, scheduled to come up in Naharlagun.

Khandu gave details of the present state of infrastructure development as well as the administrative and faculty set-up of the Tomo Riba Institute of Health and Medical Sciences (TRIHMS), which is designated to be the first medical college of Arunachal Pradesh.

The Chief Minister also assured the MCI president that all requirements as per the guidelines would be positively met and all existing deficiencies would be removed.

The MCI president appreciated the consistent persistence of the Chief Minister and assured all help towards starting the medical college, awaiting the MCI nod for the last three years.

Earlier, on Wednesday, Khandu had met Union Health Minister JP Nadda and sought his intervention to start the TRIHMS academic session soon.

It may be recalled that the medical college project has been pending since 2015. For this, the State Government had vacated many government offices from the old Secretariat and old State Assembly complex in the heart of the town and also allotted 150 acres of land in the vicinity for future expansion of the institute.

The Chief Minister was accompanied by Principal Resident Commissioner Jeetendra Narayan and Health Commissioner Kaling Tayeng.
