Tamil Nadu Congress, CPI(M) MPs mock BJP pres. Naddatext_fields
Chennai: After BJP President JP Nadda proclaimed that 95 per cent of the work for the AIIMS, Madurai, has been completed, CPI-M and Congress MPs from Tamil Nadu took to Twitter, posting the bare land where the institution's works are supposedly nearly over.
Congress' Virudhunagar MP Manickam Tagore and CPI-M's Madurai MP Su Venkatesan pointed out that the large piece of land in Madurai's Thoppur is still empty, and no construction has been started yet.
Tagore tweeted, "Thank you for the 95% completed #Madurai AIIMS. I and Madurai MP# SuVe4Madurai searched for one hour at the Thoppur site and found nothing.. Someone had stolen the building."
Tagore asked, "How can a former Union Health minister make such a claim when even the tender was not floated?"
He further said that the people of Tamil Nadu have been waiting for the AIIMS in Madurai, but the BJP had cheated them, making false claims.
CPI-M MP from Madurai, Su Venkatesan, tweeted in Tamil that he has inspected the AIIMS Madurai site to see how the building has been constructed.
According to Venkatesan, the order for a revised estimate of Rs 1,977 crore was issued in March 2021, but the cabinet approval has not been granted to the proposal yet.
JP Nadda, who is on a tour of Tamil Nadu, claimed in a meeting of industrialists that about 95 per cent of the works of the AIIMS in Madurai was over, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi would inaugurate the institution once it was completed.
