“With most modern operation theatres, the proposed hospital would provide super-specialty treatment of international standards to the people of the northeastern states,” said K. Panchepakesan, a senior official of the trust.

Panchepakesan said: “Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Heavy Industries Minister Santosh Mohan Dev have asked various public sector undertakings to donate funds for the ambitious hospital.”
A helicopter would also be arranged for carrying serious patients to and from the hospital, which would provide free treatment to the poor and tea garden workers.
