Nongstoiñ: Khasi Student Union Mawshynrut Circle expressed concern over the suspension of the service by the closure of Sub Centre at Tynhiang,West Khasi Hills. This one of a few medical centres in the area.
President Armstrong Sohshang, said that the Sub Centre was closed from the 11th of last month by the landowners who leased the land to the Centre.
The reason being that one of the employee who also belong to the landowner family who worked as the chowkidar in place of his late maternal uncle was terminated from service. This happens despite he having received the appointment letter which allows him to work temporarily from 25th August till 22nd October.
But sadly, even prior to this deadline he was terminated with just a phone call later followed by a terminating letter. Another one is appointed in his place. This act by the authority of the Centre goes against the agreement signed between the government and the landowners in 1992.
Armstrong Sohshang President KSU Mawshynrut Circle said that this suspension of the service of the sub-centre caused so much problem to the people in surrounding villages.
