Chandigarh, 3rd November (Trinew)
After Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Haryana may become a program. His program is likely to be decided around November 15. Although the date has not been decided by the PMO yet, the government has started internal preparations. PM Modi will lay the foundation stone of the country’s 22nd AIIMS to be built at Majra village in Rewari. Apart from this, they can also gift about half a dozen big projects to the people of the state.
Ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the central Modi government had gifted AIIMS to Haryana. Work on this has not yet started because there was a dispute over the land selected for AIIMS. Earlier the site for AIIMS in Manethi was finalized but it was rejected due to the objection of the environment department. After this Majra Gram Panchayat offered land for AIIMS. The government also acquired the land of the village farmers along with the panchayat land.
Recently CM Manohar Lal Khattar had invited PM Narendra Modi to come to Haryana during his meeting. It is said that the PM has given the green signal to come to Haryana, but the date has not been decided yet. PM may inaugurate and lay foundation stones of some more projects during Haryana visit. Earlier, the government had transferred the land in Majra village to the Union Health Ministry so that the construction of AIIMS could begin.
Union Minister Rao Indrajit Singh has also been trying for a long time to build AIIMS. They have also said that the foundation stone of AIIMS will be laid by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This AIIMS in Rewari will be a big gift for the people of South Haryana and it is also a big political issue. BJP is considered to have the most influence in Ahirwal. With this thought, BJP gifted AIIMS to Ahirwal so that this vote bank can be permanently attached to it.
Along with health facilities, medical education, nursing and health related research will also be promoted at AIIMS. People of Rewari, Mahendragarh, Bhiwani, Jhajjar, Mewat districts of South Haryana are still dependent on PGIMS in Rohtak, private hospital in Gurugram and hospitals in Jaipur in Rajasthan.
