IMPROVED HEALTH SERVICE AND FAMILY WELFARE
A State can never progress without good health of the people of the state. Just like it is a primary duty for a Government to provide security to the life and property of the people, at the same time another primary duty is to provide proper health services to the people. Therefore, the Congress party and the Government have been doing their best for the welfare of all in the state of Assam in the real sense of the term through proper healthcare services.
During the tenure of the AGP Government, the condition of the health sector of our State was so poor that not only there were no doctors, nurses in the hospitals but no medicines were available. The hospitals had actually nothing in the name of building or infrastructure. Let alone Not only there were no new infrastructures but even the existing buildings were in a total bad condition. But in 2001, after the Congress Government took charges under the leadership of Chief Minister, Shri Tarun Gogoi, a revolutionary change began to take place. When the Congress Government came into power again in 2006 and after implementation of the election promises, a there has been a sea change in the health sector. Another hallmark of the success is availability of Mritunjay 108 and Sanjivani 104 services. Lakhs of people have been benefitted by these services.
