A GREAT RESTORER RISES

"Then we two and the Jam Saheb came to the temple and there in the presence of about 500 People, I announced: 'Government of India have decided to re-build this temple and instal the deity.' 'This Government has come to fulfil and not to destroy. The age of reconstruction is now on.'

"Immediately after this, the Jam Saheb announced a donation of one lakh of rupees. Fifteen minutes later, a huge public meeting was held in the Ahalya Bai Temple Where Sardar, in his speech, said:

'ON THIS AUSPICIOUS DAY OF THE NEW YEAR, WE HAVE DECIDED THAT SOMANATHA SHOULD BE RECONSTRUCTED. YOU, PEOPLE OF SAURASHTRA, SHOULD DO YOUR BEST. THIS IS A  HOLY TASK IN WHICH ALL SHOULD PARTICIPATE.' 

Jam Saheb gave the first donation of one lakh of rupees for the reconstruction. Samaldas Gandhi representing the Junagadh administration followed with Rs. 51,000.
