AIIMS Jammu is a reality: BJP

Bharatiya Janata Party state spokesperson, Brig. Anil Gupta while reacting to a report published in a leading daily wherein it has been accused that the government has yet to acquire land for AIIMS, he said that the statement is motivated and a brazen attempt to malign the state government. 

The state Health Minister Bali Bhagat is taking personal interest to ensure that the promise made to the people of Jammu by Bharatiya Janata Party is fulfilled and the people of Jammu region are provided best health care facilities, he added.
