Health Minister Brahm Mohindra said that it was the Badals, and not the Congress government, who delayed the AIIMS Bathinda project for their own vested interests. Besides, at the same time, they also did not allow the Mohali Medical College to come for the same reasons, the minister added.
Reacting to Union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal’s allegations that it was because of the delay by the Punjab government that the classes could not be started in AIIMS Bathinda, the minister said, she seemed to be quite ignorant that the classes are not to start in Bathinda, but have already been approved to be started in Faridkot.
He said, the union minister was trying to pass on the blame for the delay to the state government, while it was the responsibility of the central government. “But I appreciate her expectations from our government that what her own government could not do in three years, she expects us to do overnight”, Mohindra remarked.
