She also reiterated the fact that it was a great tragedy to lose a young person like Sayantan Chakraborty last October due to the lack of expertise to give an angioplasty. She aslo reminded him of the fact that how the people of Barak Valley were assured of a cardiologist and a neurosurgeon for SMCH, but nothing has been done in that regard as of the day. She also wrote about how after the intervention of Padmashree Dr. Ravi Kannan, a cardiovascular surgeon Dr. P Gopal visited in March of this year and agreed to serve in SMCH on certain conditions, but no action has been taken on the proposal sent to the Health Department of Assam.
She also wrote that as Sunday is the birth anniversary of the deceased Sayantan, it would be a great tribute to him to approve the arrangement with Dr. P Gopal on this date.
