Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone for the upcoming All Indian Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) at Bilaspur on 3rd October.

Union Minister of Health & Family Welfare, JP Nadda expressed deep gratitude of Prime Minister Narendra Modi for sanctioning AIIMS Bilaspur in Himachal Pradesh.

The Union Health Minister stated that AIIMS Bilaspur is another milestone in the list of achievements of the NDA government in the health sector. Nadda stated

“Under the guidance and visionary leadership of the Prime Minister, the Ministry is fast moving in strengthening the tertiary care network in the country.”

He stated that AIIMS Bilaspur will provide the much needed tertiary medical services to a vast population of not only Himachal Pradesh but the other northern states too.

AIIMS Bilaspur, with its multiple disciplines, will herald the hilly state towards comprehensive development and growth, Nadda further added.

The Himachal Pradesh Cabinet had approved to set up AIIMS in Bilaspur. However, the work of premier institute got delayed and now as the state is poised to go into poll in few weeks, and sudden announcement of its inauguration seems nothing but to grab electorates’ attention.
