Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on January 20 inaugurated the newly-constructed arts block, auditorium and boys’ hostel building at Haflong Government College.
Built with a total amount of Rs 15.35 crore under NLCPR and SOPD schemes, the new infrastructure is expected to give a boost to academic environment in the Dima Hasao district.
Saying that the Assam government will provide Rs 10 crore for construction of a new science block at the college which will be completed within two years, chief minister Sarma urged chief executive member NCHAC Debolal Garlosa to identify land for second campus of the college. “There is plan of introducing PG course on all subjects in the college,” Sarma said.
