JAMMU, Aug 01: Facing huge protests over demands for a separate AIIMS in Jammu, Health minister Lal Singh said that both the Jammu and Kashmir regions will get similar institutes even as he accused the opposition of misleading the people on the issue. Singh said, "You cannot fool the people of Jammu region. As far as facilities of AIIMS are concerned, you know there is one AIIMS, it cannot be divided. If four streams are for Kashmir, same will be for Jammu. It is very clear. If there would be eight surgeons in Kashmir, it will be eight surgeons in Jammu. They are creating confusion for the sake of agitation, not for the benefit of the people of Jammu.
