Finally, the dream of Uttar Pradesh to have an institute on the lines of All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) will see light of day and turn into a reality. With land for the project being recognized in the northern state's Raebareli district comprising Congress chief Sonia Gandhi's parliamentary constituency, the dream will soon turn into reality. Mr. Devendra Pratap Singh, the Samajwadi Party (SP) legislator from Sarini has already identified about 114 acres in Bannamau gram panchayat in village Chanda of Lalganj tehsil especially for this dream project. This was confirmed by officials in a report, recently.
According to an official, the proposal has almost been brought into the chief minister's notice and is at present being studied on carefully for further action. The official informed that the legislator had clearly stated the availability of about 50.31 acres of land. No objection certificates (NoCs) have also been obtained from various local farmers for another 63.40 acres of land. The recommended land is located alongside the Lucknow-Banda national highway. It is about 33 km from the district headquarter and about 80 km from the state capital.An official has also confirmed the dispatching of a detailed report by the sub-divisional magistrate (SDM) of Lalganj to the district magistrate. He also added that further action is at present being taken.
Many trusted government sources have mentioned that legislator of Banchrawa, Ram Lal Akela has identified a land in his citizenry that coincidentally falls in Raebareli. The best part is that the government authorities were working "overtime" to investigate on the proposal. The state government recently made it absolutely clear that it would stretch out a helping hand and allot all possible support to the union health ministry of health and make sure that an AIIMS-like institute is inaugurated in the state without any political differences interrupting the ambitious project.
