On Thursday in Haldwani, Uttarakhand, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone for the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and announce several other projects worth over Rs 17,500 crore.
After the one in Rishikesh, which opened in 2012, this will be the second AIIMS in the hill state.
“Devbhoomi Uttarakhand will reach new heights of development tomorrow.” In Haldwani, I’ll be laying foundation stones and inaugurating 23 projects worth over Rs. 17,500 crore. PM Modi tweeted on Wednesday, “These include infrastructure projects related to health, roads, and irrigation.”
Pushkar Singh Dhami, the chief minister of Uttarakhand, expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for accepting his request to open an AIIMS in the Kumaon region for people who find traveling to AIIMS, Rishikesh, for treatment difficult.
The PM will put the foundation stone for AIIMS Haldwani and 23 other projects totaling over Rs. 17,500 crore.
According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), these projects span a wide range of sectors in Uttarakhand, including irrigation, road, housing, health infrastructure, industry, sanitation, and drinking water supply.
The foundation stone for AIIMS Rishikesh satellite center in Udham Singh Nagar district and Jagjivan Ram Government Medical College in Pithoragarh are 23 projects.
“These two hospitals will cost approximately 500 crores and 450 crores, respectively. According to the PMO statement, the improved medical infrastructure will benefit not only the people of Kumaon and Terai but also the people of Uttar Pradesh’s bordering areas.
On Thursday, the inauguration events take place months before Uttarakhand’s high-stakes assembly elections. The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which last won elections in 2017, hopes for a repeat victory.
The Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party are the other main contenders in this year’s elections (AAP).
On Wednesday, the Uttarakhand high court issued a notice to the Election Commission, requesting a response to public interest litigation (PIL) calling for the state’s assembly elections to be postponed due to the threat posed by the Omicron variant of the coronavirus. The high court heard a petition in this case on Wednesday.
The case’s next hearing is scheduled for January 3rd.
