Social activist urge NBCC to construct Naga Chaplain’s quarter at CMCH Vellore on plot bought in 2001

Mokokchung: Land bought under initiative of Lt. Rev. Dr. Noksangchila, then Chaplain of CMCH Vellore

Mokokchung based social activist, Bendang Imsong, has requested the Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC) to initiate and complete the construction of Naga Chaplain Permanent Residence at Christian Medical College and Hospital (CMCH) Vellore, Tamil Nadu, on the plot purchased in 2001.

Imsong informed in his letter that the plot was bought at the time when Lt. Rev. Dr. Noksangchila was the Chaplain (1988-2001) of CMCH, Vellore. He reminded that with the permission of the NBCC, Lt. Rev. Dr. Noksangchila organized a fund drive and raised Rs. 4,50,000 to buy a plot of land at the CMCH Vellore Compound for the purpose of building a guest house for the Naga people who came for treatment.

However, since the Government of Nagaland is taking the initiatives in construction of a patient house, the social activist suggested that NBCC build the quarter for the Chaplain.

Imsong had earlier this month written an open letter to the Chief Minister of Nagaland expressing concerns over the delay in the construction of the patient home.

Mategaonkar Award for Outstanding Service to the Healing by Christian Medical Association of India in 2007 and the same year, she was awarded by the Government of Nagaland the Lifetime Achievement Award “for her pioneering role in guiding society and for inspiring women to achieve higher goals.”
