APPENDIX

It is spending money only for repairing and lighting roads of Prabhas, and for providing medical aid and water for the pilgrims. These expenses are borne by all governments within whose territory a large concourse gathers. This has been done even in the case of Congress gatherings, and certainly when huge Melas gather at Hardwar, Prayag, Rameshwar, Nasik and Ajmer.

"As you will see, the Government of India not only took the initial decision to reconstruct the temple, but formulated and set going the scheme, and created the agency for its further implementation. This will clearly indicate to you the extent of the Government of India's association with the scheme.

"You pointedly referred to me in the Cabinet as connected with Somanatha. I am glad you did so; for I do not want to keep back any part of my views or activities, particularly from you who have placed such abundant confidence in me all these months. I have helped in building up several institutions, for instance, the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Public Schoo at Andheri, the Chembur Home fo  Destitute Children and the Institute of Agriculture at Anand.

If similarly, I am now helping to build up Somanatha as a centre of religion and culture, a University and a farm, it is only as a humble task to which I have been called.
