Prime Minister Narendra Modi will roll out various projects worth nearly Rs. 8,500 crore, including an AIIMS and four other hospitals, a bridge over Brahmaputra and one methanol plant, in Assam on April 14, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said on Sunday. Addressing a press conference here, Sarma said Modi will be on a day-long visit to Guwahati, where he will kick start a range of projects through physical and virtual modes.

"He will land in Guwahati at 11:30 am and will reach IIT Guwahati by a chopper. From there, he will reach the upcoming AIIMS and inaugurate it. Around 85 per cent construction of AIIMS are completed and the remaining will be over in due course of time," he added.

The AIIMS is being constructed by the Centre at an expenditure of Rs. 1,123 crore, and it will have a 750 bed hospital and 100 MBBS seats.

"These hospitals will have 500 beds and 100 MBBS seats each. The Prime Minister will also lay the foundation stone of a research hospital within IIT Guwahati campus, to be developed jointly by IIT Guwahati and Assam government, which will initially invest Rs. 600 crore," he added.
