APPENDIX

As I learn from Gadgil, it was also mentioned to the Cabinet. At the time, the policy of the Government was that the W.M.P. Ministry should reconstruct the old shrines and they were so doing in the case of certain Muslim shrines and mosques.

"The Government of India thereafter deputed Government architects to visit Prabhas and prepared a report for the reconstruction of the temple.

" When the whole scheme was discussed by Sardar with Bapu, he stated that it was all right except that the funds necessary for reconstructing the temple should come from the public. Gadgil also saw Bapu and Bapu gave him the same advice.

Thereafter, the idea that the Government of India should finance the reconstruction of the temple was given up.

"On December 25, 1947, the States Ministry requested the Junagadh authorities to lease out a sufficiently large area surrounding the temple for development on the lines decided upon. The lines included the development of the town of Prabhas, which had fallen into neglect, into an attractive sea-side resort; the leasing out to the temple the areas necessary for developing it; the raising of the monument at Dehotsarga-the place where Sri Krishna had left Ms body; setting up a seat of learning which may develop into a University and a model agricultural and cattle farm on the lines of our Institute of Agriculture, Anand.
