Health and family welfare minister S. Pangnyuh Phom on Wednesday asked the health and family welfare department to resume the construction work of the medical college in Kohima from Thursday.
He asked the department to come up with a system to manage the labourers and obtain special permission from the district administration in order to purchase essential materials for the ongoing construction.
He also discussed about strengthening of doctors in district level for temporary adjustments and allocations of manpower.
Phom was reviewing the Covid-19 situation at the health and family welfare department’s principal director in Kohima.
