Lays foundation of AIIMS and IIIT, dedicates steel processing plant

PRIME Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday took a swipe at Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh by asking the people to throw the Congress Government, which was “on bail”, out of the State.

Launching the BJP’s campaign in the poll-bound state, he said “The entire family of the Chief Minister is facing corruption charges and is on bail. When I asked some Congress leaders why the Chief Minister was not being replaced, they said how could the party take action when its entire top leadership itself was on bail,” he said. Singh is facing money-laundering charges and a disproportionate assets case.

Earlier, Modi laid a foundation of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Kothipura in Bilaspur district, Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) in the Haroli constituency in Una and dedicating a steel processing plant at Kandrori in Kangra district online from the Water Sports Complex on the banks of the Gobind Sagar dam.

Asserting that no case of corruption had surfaced since the BJP-led NDA Government came to power at the Centre three years ago, Modi said till 2014, the newspapers were full of reports about scams, be it the Coalgate or the 2G scam, and asked the people of Himachal to “throw out the Government on bail”.

The BJP was fully geared up to take up the reins of power in the State and fulfil the dreams of the people of a clean and efficient Government, he added.
The NDA Government believed in development and currently, 13 major projects involving an investment of Rs 15,000 crore were under implementation.
