Central team inspects new site for AIIMS in Rewari

Rewari, October 3

A five-member team of the Central Government on Thursday inspected the proposed site for the nation's 22nd AIIMS in Majra and nearby villages in the district.

The team, led by Sunil Sharma, joint secretary, Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana, under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, also discussed various issues pertaining to the proposed site with local administrative officials and reviewed its progress. Two senior officers of AIIMS, Delhi, and a senior architect of the Centre were also part of the team.

The AIIMS project was announced by PM Narendra Modi during his visit to Kurukshetra in February 2019 for Manethi village here but the district authorities did not find adequate land in consolidated manner for the project so it proposed a new site in Majra and surrounding villages.

Meanwhile, Ved Prakash Vidrohi, spokesman for the Congress, said the visit of the Central team was nothing but an eyewash. "The BJP government has not finalised the site for the AIIMS project even 19 months after the PM's announcement, which is a clear indication that the government is not serious about the project. It's just passing time by carrying out such inspections so that locals don't resist it by raising the issue," Vidrohi added. — TNS
