Jammu, May 19: Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed when claimed that All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) was meant for Kashmir and not for Jammu while citing from the Agenda of Alliance of BJP-PDP coalition government. According to a line in the agenda which reads that setting up a Super Specialty AIIMS in Valley.
The BJP had approved AIIMS to the Kashmir valley before the sworn in of PDP-BJP Coalition government and was announced during the budget speech by Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley on February, 28 where as the PDP-BJP government was sworn in on March,1 and the agenda of the alliance was also released on the same day. The IIT for the state was announced months before the PDP-BJP government by Dr. Jitender Singh, Minister of State in PMO therefore this decision has nothing to do with the agenda. as the IIT for Jammu was announced when the state was under the NC-Congress.
