Speed News Desk | Updated on: 27 July 2015, 16:22 IST

The AIIMS Coordination Committee in Jammu is into its seventh day of hunger strike, with no representative from the government contacting them so far.

A group of 70 organisations is demanding the setting up of an All India Institute of Medical Sciences in the Jammu region. They ave given a call for a three-day Jammu bandh from July 31.

It will be the third bandh observed over the issue in the Jammu region since April 2015.

A complete bandh was earlier observed on April 24 and May 27 after which Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh had given a written assurance that an AIIMS will be announced for Jammu by the Centre on or before July 20.

The ACC resumed its agitation on July 21 after no such announcement was made within that time.
