The ambitious AIIMS project may be shifted to Majra village following non-availability of adequate consolidated land in Manethi village. Residents of Manethi have given their consent for 175 acres, but the land is scattered. A total of 200 acres of consolidated land is required for the project.

Residents of Majra village have offered to make 315 acres available for the project. The district administration has shifted its focus to Majra, hoping to get adequate consolidated land. Majra and Manethi are adjoining villages.

“A total of 200 acres of land is required for the hospital, its offices, research wings and residences of staff. Manethi village is unable to fulfil this condition and we are exploring the possibility of executing the project in Majra village,” said an officer on the condition of anonymity.

Sheotaz Singh, Manethi sarpanch and AIIMS Sangharsh Samiti chief, said they were trying to persuade villagers whose land was at the proposed site, but they had

not offered land for the project yet.

Deputy Commissioner Yashendra Singh said the AIIMS Sangharsh Samiti had been asked to provide consolidated land for the project. “There are some chunks whose owners have not offered their land yet while these patches are essential,” he said.

Ved Prakash Vidrohi, Congress spokesman, accused the government of fooling villagers. “The government should acquire land instead of urging farmers to offer land if it really wants to establish AIIMS,” he said.
