Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa on Wednesday thanked Mata Amritanandamayi for building 100 houses in flood-affected areas, and said that the government would allot 15 acres of land and sanction Rs 5 crore to her mutt for building a hospital for the poor at Ramasandra.

At a function organised to hand over the keys of the houses, Yeddyurappa said, “Amrutanandamayi’s ashram had promised to build 700 houses and they have built 100 houses within 20 days. The other mutts and altruists who had promised to relocate the flood-hit villages would be inspired by this and construct the houses at the earliest.” On the sidelines of the function, Yeddyurappa said, “Different people have promised to build altogether 70,000 houses in the flood-affected areas and we are sure that they will be constructed by June.” An ashram official announced that the CM has asked them to construct another 5,000 houses. “We will see if it is possible after we construct the remaining 600 houses. These houses are being built only due to the efforts of the Brahmacharis and Brahmacharinis of the ashram,” he added.
