Sonia lays foundation of AIIMS in Rae Bareli

Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday laid the foundation of the much awaited All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in her parliamentary constituency drawing sharp reaction from BJP as why this programme was kept under wraps.

In an unscheduled programme Gandhi, who reached here this morning along with her daughter Priyanka Vadra, laid the foundation for AIIMS and attended the bhumi pujan at Munshiganj old sugar mill campus in the city.

Priyanka Vardra was also present in the brief and simple function organised by public sector unit Hospital Services and Building Construction Company.

The sudden decision to lay the foundation stone for AIIMS could irk the Samajwadi Party government in Uttar Pradesh which had provided land for the Rs 1000 crore project.

Meanwhile, Gandhi also laid the foundation for a multi-purpose City Resources Centre in the city to be developed by HUDCo. The centre would be spread around in 9000 sq meters and HUDCo will spent around Rs 12.5 crore for the construction.
