Imphal, Jan 8,
The aim of this initiative of Assam Rifles is to provide free medical treatment and consultation to people residing in remote villages where even basic medical facilities are not available. Apart from providing free medical assistance, counselling on health education, hygiene and sanitation was also undertaken primarily for women.
The enthusiastic involvement of the people, especially the Headman and Village Authority, is testimony to the trust and faith between Assam Rifles and the local population. Extending heartfelt gratitude, the villagers were highly magnanimous in offering their complements for the initiative.
