No announcement yet about 70,000 Crores or AIIMS for Jammu

Jammu, July 17: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is on a day long visit to Jammu on the occasion of Birth Centenary of Late Shri Girdhari Lal Dogra. did not make any announcement on the much-hyped development package of Rs 70,000 crores for Jammu and Kashmir. The speeches of Union Minister Arun Jaitley, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed or PM Narendra Modi had no mention of the development-cum-flood relief package for Jammu and Kashmir.

In the same event there was no announcement over the allotment of AIIMS for Jammu. It may be noted here that Dy Chief Minister Dr. Nirmal Singh had assured a response in writing about the allotment of AIIMS by 20 July and it was being speculated that the announcement may be made today by the Prime Minister himself.
