Mahoba: Adopting a unique and noble to make an appeal to Prime Minister Modi, Muslims in the Bundelkhand district are writing letters in Sanskrit demanding establishment of All India Medical Science (AIIMS) in the area.
“We have launched a campaign to get an AIIMS for this district and for this, over 50,000 postcards have already been sent to the prime minister. Now, Mulsim youths and children are writing to him in Sanskrit with the demand. Soon, over 10,000 such post cards will be sent to him,” social activist Tara Patkar said.
Explaining the logic behind the demand, Patkar said the district is situated at the heart of Bundelkhand and does not have medical care facilities.
“Patients admitted in primary health centres are referred to Kanpur, Lucknow, Agra and to districts of neigbouring Madhya Pradesh. Setting up of AIIMS will help the entire region, spread over seven districts in UP and five of MP,” he said.
The campaign is being supported by all those who belong to the district but are living abroad.
