Rewari, November 2

The AIIMS Sangharsh Samiti has announced to stage a day-long dharna at Jawahar Lal Nehru Park on November 7 to mount pressure on the state government for providing the residents of Majra and Bhalkhi villages here with Rs 50 lakh per acre as compensation for their land offered for the proposed AIIMS project. It is also demanding the laying of the foundation stone of the project at the earliest and has threatened to intensify the stir if the demand is not met.

"More than 350 acres of land was offered by the residents of Majra and Bhalkhi villages for the AIIMS project and they are demanding Rs 50 lakh per acre while the state government has offered to pay Rs 30 lakh per acre which is much less than the market value. Hence, the samiti has decided to sit on dharna on November 7," said samiti spokesman Rajender Singh Nimoth.

A five-member team of the Central Government had inspected the proposed land in Majra and Bhalkhi villages on October 1 and found it suitable for the project.

The nation's 22nd AIIMS project was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Kurukshetra in February 2019. Initially, the project was executed at Manethi village but later it was shifted to Majra due to non-availability of adequate land there.
