Vidya Balan roped in as brand ambassador for sanitation campaign
Protesters peeing at Jairam Ramesh's gate after his `toilets more sacred than temples` comment.
I hate spending money for Temples, Churches and Mosques. But we can't prevent people from giving donations to Temples, Churches and Mosques. Why can't Jairam Ramesh demand Govt. to stop giving subsidies for Hajj pilgrims. Govt. is encouraging foreign investments to reduce rupee depreciation. But encouraging hajj pilgrimage by providing subsidies will negate investments made by forign investors. If people have money, let them go with their own money. If money spend for hajj pilgrimage is used for education then we can reduce population growth. If people have less children then they can spend more money for toilet, health etc.
Govt should stay out of temple/church/mosque - instead concentrate on education, health facilities, sanitation and other important issue that affect the country. India has been independent for 60+ years and large sections of our country are mired in poverty and illiteracy.
