JAMMU: Protesting against shifting of the proposed AIIMS to Kashmir, the Shiv Sena today demanded the resignations of Jammu and Kashmir deputy CM Nirmal Singh and the Forest minister for failing to fulfil their commitment.

A large number of Shiv Sena members blocked the Jammu-Pathankot national highway during their protest as they demanded the resignations of deputy Chief Minister and Forest Minister Bali Bhagat at Bari Brahmana in Samba district here.

"All those including the deputy chief minister, forest minister and other legislators of the party who failed to fulfil the commitment must immediately resign," Shiv Sena activist Raj Singh said.

Accusing the BJP of betraying the people of Jammu, he said that the BJP leaders have failed to uphold the commitment they made prior to the elections.

"BJP played with the sentiments of people and situation demands that those who are the signatories and party to it should resign from their respective positions and seek a public apology," the activist added.

The state government has decided to shift the proposed premier health institute, AIIMS to Kashmir causing protests by Congress and the AIIMS coordination committee (ACC) which has called for a three-day complete 'Jammu bandh' from July 31 while their hunger strike continues.
