    After extolling the need of toilets over temples, it seems Jairam Ramesh has found `secular` use for MNREGA funds - repairing mosque fences. Cannot MNREGA funds/labour have been used to construct toilets ? Why is it that our ruling party having been in power for 50+ years has not been able to ensure that all children go to school and that all citizens have access to decent sanitation ? Is it the responsibiliy of a secular government to get into temples and mosques ? Is it not the function of Wakf Boards to maintain Mosques and graveyards ?

    Mr Ramesh, we need toilets more than dargah fences, too

    They have lost most of the Hindu vote. So congis give sops and Islam is again used by them for votes. As usual the carrot has been dangled.

    Whats wrong with congees?

    Why equate toilets and temples?

    I bet he would think twice before saying the same about mosques and churches.

    This party is hell bent on wiping the identity of the the majority.

    Why they don't use WKF's money?

    Not allowed to use it for renovation work of the mosques?

    NREGA funds are not meant to be disbursed for quasi-religious purposes. When the Supreme Court has itself suggested the phaseout of the Haj subsidy, for Ramesh to suggest that a universal social security scheme like NREGA can be used to fence dargahs and eidgahs needs questioning.
