With the increasing economy, money from temple is no longer a big chunk of state govt revenues.At least a good govt. may take that money for welfare schemes. Priests and temple managers are well known to be corrupt goondas. You can't expect them to do public good with the money. So the better option is for govt. to use temple funds so that some public good (infra, education, housing etc.) is done.
There is a different perspective to this....
Only Hindu temples are asked to be accountable to the govt where as Abrahamic cults are not.
Argument is that either make all religions accountable or none at all.
