BJP MP Anurag Thakur on Saturday said institutions such as All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) would be set up in Hamirpur district and there was no question of its opening in any other part of the state.
He said those claiming that a similar institution would be opened in Mandi were totally wrong.
While talking to mediapersons here on Saturday, he said the Congress government in the state was befooling people on various issues and was taking credit of all those schemes that were being implemented by the central government led by Narendra Modi.
Earlier, workers of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) of the district congratulated Anurag for becoming the national president of the morcha for the third time in succession.
Anurag demanded from the state government to clarify how many youths had been given employment under the National Skill Development Programme after collecting a sum of Rs. 1,500 each from 8,000 youth of the state as one-time investment. He said this work was being done in connection with Santum Company of New Delhi and they were to be given a sum of Rs. 3,000 each after completing the training. A sum of Rs. 1.20 crore was pending due to these persons. It was a serious issue and the state government should clarify its stand, he said.
Replying to a question about the registration of third FIR against the HP State Cricket Association, he said the state government should clarify whether it had registered such cases against all those IAS persons who were holding posts in the departments of revenue, sports and education during the previous BJP regime. However, the HPCA was doing yeomen duty for the people of state.
While addressing the BJYM workers, he said they should take a lead in the eradication of social evils from the society.
