Chandigarh – Union Food Processing Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal on Wednesday asked Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh to expedite work on the construction of approach road to new AIIMS work site in Bathinda as well as the establishment of a power grid station besides other civil works to ensure the prestigious project does not get delayed any further. In a statement here, Badal said that Union Health Minister JP Nadda has already brought these issues to the notice of the Chief Minister last month and that the state should not lose any time in completing these projects as any further delay would be to the detriment of poor patients in the Malwa region. “The project has already been delayed considerably due to the late clearances given by the state government to shift out water channels from the project site,” she said.“The people of Malwa cannot afford any further delay on the part of Punjab government, as the centre has come out with a firm road map for starting diagnostics in April next year and the medical session from July 2019. But the state must also fulfill its share of the responsibility to make this possible,” she added. Giving further details, Badal said the Union Health Minister had already brought it to the notice of Punjab chief minister that the state should complete construction of approach road from the National Highway to AIIMS entrance gate. She said similarly a 66/11 ky substation is needed to be constructed on the campus besides the construction of sewerage and storm water disposal points.
