Protest Shutdown Over Demand for Setting Up of AIIMS Disrupts Life in Jammu
A protest shutdown was called in Jammu on May 27, 2015, to press for setting up of an All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in the region. Markets, public transport and other businesses and educational institutions remained closed here because of the shutdown called by the coordination committee comprising of the Jammu Bar Association, chamber of commerce and industry and local transporters' association.

Attendances in government offices, banks and post offices were affected as no public transportation was available in Jammu city. The shutdown was total in the old city areas while some skeletal transport plied on the peripheral roads of the city.
