TAMENGLONG, Sept. 04: The district administration Tamenglong on Friday inaugurated two public toilets at different locations and a garage constructed by District Water and Sanitation Mission Tamenglong (DWSM) under Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM).
The first community toilet was located near Haipou Jadonang Park Tamenglong headquarter and the other the one is near district hospital Duigailong Tamenglong. A garage for medical staff was also constructed near the district hospital Duigailong Tamenglong.
The two community toilets were inaugurated by the deputy commissioner Tamenglong who is also Chairman of DWSM Tamenglong Armstrong Pame in the presence of PHED Tamenglong and Executive Engineer and Member Secretary DWSM Tamenglong Gaijinlung Thaimei and Chief Medical Officer Tamenglong Dr Chambo Gonmei, New Lambulane Chairman Mathew Pamei and other dignitaries.
Speaking to the mammoth gathering, the deputy commissioner Tamenglong Armstrong Pame pointed out the need to have public toilets here at Haipou Jadonang Park Tamenglong headquarters, where public programme was held organised both government and civil society.
“This community toilet will open only during day time, we will put notice in script ‘If want clean toilet pay Rs. 5 and if you want dirty toilet use free’. We will put small box to drop money. CCTV will oversees who steal the money”, Pame added.
He urged all citizens of Tamenglong to use properly, maintain properly and save the public property.
At district hospital site, Pame said “this is small thing for so many people but this is really- really big thing for hospital administration. Whenever patient comes, every patient is accompany by two three people. They have no place to use toilet, they have to go inside the district hospital and use wards/ patient toilets for urine and in the process it makes the district hospital very dirty”.
He said that he had been listening to CMO and MS of district hospital for last few years and at last community toilet was able to construct under Swachh Bharat Mission.
He expresses his sincere thanked to the PHED EE Gaijinlung Thaimei and his team and he also hopes that the medical team will make best use of toilet and also a garage.
