Rail blockade for AIIMS demand

The Central Assam AIIMS Demand Committee ( CAADC ), an umbrella organisation of several organisations demanding for AIIMS in Central Assam, has announced a three hours rail blockade from 9 a.m on Friday next at Chaparmukh in support of its demand for setting up of the proposed AIIMS like institution in Assam at Raha. The Committee has also decided to resume its protest movement  stronger in the coming days.

Speaking with this correspondent on Tuesday, a source in the Central Assam AIIMS Demand Committee said, “ The state government incorporated some irrelevant points on the draft that would be send to the central government which we unanimously opposed. Since then the state government showed total negligence remaining silent on the draft issue and had stopped any further correspondence with us. This has disappointed us all and due to this attitude of the state government we are compelled to go for the Rail blockade programme."

It might be mentioned here that the Central Assam AIIMS Demand Committee put on hold its all agitational programmes coming to a resolution on July 19 after a discussion with the Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal that the government will prepare a draft with full participation of the leaders of the AIIMS Demand Committees, highlighting their concerns and proposals and send a letter to the Central government to do the needful. But the AIIMS Demand Committee alleged that the state government tried to divert the issue adopting names of some new places demanding setting up of AIIMS in the draft other than Raha.
