Presently about 92,000 service projects are providing services in the ﬁelds of Education, Health, Skill development, Women empowerment and others.
Food relief work has been going on in the states of Punjab, Bihar, Maharastra, Karnataka and Kerala by providing food, clothes, temporary shelter, medical help and evacuating people from flood affected areas.
He said that in AP, in violation of the Article 27 of Constitution, the state govt. has decided to pay a salary of Rs.5,000 per month to every Christian paster, Rs.10,000 per month to mullah of Mosque, Rs.5,000 per month to Mowzams of mosque.
This is of preferential treatment to particular religion, he said. The AP government is also planning to acquire exclusively Hindu temple lands with the aim of distribution as house sites to the needy. This is illegal and against the wishes of the donors of the Hindu society, he stated.
