The newly-constructed community hall at Pohkseh was constructed under the MP Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS), 2013-14 at an estimated cost of Rs 25 lakh.
Speaking at the iuguration as chief guest, Lyngdoh said, “The newly-built community hall is not only for the executive members of the locality’s dorbar, but for the benefit of all residents of the locality.”

“If anyone is found to be littering within the premise of the community hall, stern action will be taken against him or her,” he warned.
