Kohima Village Council objects PPP for Medical College

Kohima, Oct 7 (UNI) Kohima Village Council (KVC) has expressed dismay and objection to the state government’s purported move to take up the Medical College Kohima (MCK) on Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode, saying it never agreed to give away their prime lands to the State Government to set up medical college on PPP mode.
In a representation to the commissioner secretary of Nagaland Health and Family welfare (H&FW), the KVC chairman Dr Neiphi Kire and secretary
Zeneizo Rutsa, expressed surprise how the State Government could change its mind to go on PPP mode after signing a Memorandum of Understanding
(MoU) with the Government of India (GoI) to upgrade the Naga Hospital Authority Kohima (NHAK) as the Government district hospital to a Government Medical College. KVC has insisted that the State government must implement the agreement with Government of India in letter and spirit.
As per the agreement, the KVC said the centre has already released some of the funds for establishment of the college, adding that even the first visit of
Medical Council of India (MCI) has already taken place. The council maintained that the State government would totally lose the trust of the public and the
Central Government if it kept on “arbitrarily changing” its decision and failed to adhere to the agreement reached.
Pointing out that a Government Medical College with modern amenities was the need for the hour for poor patients and villagers who cannot afford the
services of private hospitals, the KVC said in PPP mode, the cost of capital investments spent plus interest by the private party would be charged from the patients.
Therefore, the KVC affirmed that it objects the State government decision to go on PPP mode with the Medical College which was sanctioned as a State government undertaking. The council reminded that it agreed to part with their prime lands, residential areas, cultivations and terrace fields, in exchange for a Government Medical College in the interest of all Nagas, the release said.
