Quotes

...Nevertheless, we have increased the earlier compensation, say, for the loss of a doli (palanquin), from ` "500 to `8,000. We have increased the entire compensations almost two or threefold, while trying to bring inin all sorts of people within the ambit of compensation. If we haven’t been able to build houses for the affected people yet, we have given them `300 per month as rent money. We have also included the daily wagers and workers in the group. Not just the owners who lost their cars, but also the drivers and cleaners. Basically helping out everyone whose livelihood was associated with the pilgrimage centres. Still, I don’t make the claim that we have managed to fix the problem a hundred percent, especially taking into account the enormous size of the catastrophe, which has affected five districts. Only next year, when the reports are out, can we make any claims about the effectiveness of our outreach."
