Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday laid the foundation stone for AIIMS in Bhatinda, Punjab. The Prime Minister had earlier spoken about the demonetisation scheme at a book launch in Delhi, flew to Punjab for the All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) project in Bhatinda. The Prime Minister is expected to speak about the demonetisation move by the government and answer the questions raised by the opposition. Although, he might also be speaking about the upcoming Punjab elections of 2017.
According to an IE report, around 1,700 buses have been deployed to ferry people from the adjoining Assembly constituencies of Bathinda, Faridkot, Muktsar, two constituencies of Mansa and one constituency of Barnala to the rally. The report said that hiring of buses alone would cost Rs 80 lakh. After Bhatinda, PM Modi will participate in another event at Anandpur Sahib. AIIMS, Bhatinda is expected to be completed in 2 years. A medical college for 100 students and nursing college of 60 students will also be set up at the site. PM Modi’s rally is significant for BJP ahead of the crucial Assembly election in the state. AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal’s recent rallies in the state have attracted huge crowds in the state. During his speech, PM Modi is expected to speak on demonetisation and his war against corruption. This may further annoy the Opposition leaders as the PM has so far refused to accept their demand to debate on demonetisation in the Parliament.
