For a facility like AIIMS (All-India Institute of Medical Sciences) in Punjab, chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on Sunday requested union health and family welfare minister Dr Harsh Vardhan to send a team over to select a site.


In a letter written to Dr Vardhan, the CM mentioned the availability of four sites in Kapurthala district, adding that the land and the infrastructure would be as the ministry would require.

Dr Vardhan had cleared the project for an AIIMS-like facility in Punjab during a meeting with Badal in middle of June.
