Whereas the final hearing of the case has been fixed on May 24 , how the minister having several portfolios could make this kind of announcement in advance. He, actually, in that way contempting the court and in protest of his acts we will launch a series of protest from May 25 onwards,” Bora added. 

“There is no end of conspiracy and both Himanta Biswa Sharma and BJP led state government do not want the hospital at Raha. We will not rest until the government fulfills our demand of setting up AIIMS at Raha,” said Sarbeswar Barua , working president, MAADC.

He further said that  MAADC is going to organize series of agitation to intensify its stir for AIIMS including NH 37 blockade on May 25 at Raha chariali and Middle Assam bandh on May 26.
