Chief Minister allots 1-crore rupees to RKMM
West Bengal Chief Minister Ms. Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday evening reached Belur Math (Ramakrishna Math and Mission headquarters, RKMM). Chief Minister met RKMM president Swami Atmastanandaji and discussed various issues relating to religion, philosophy, development programmes including the 150th celebration of Swami Vivekananda. However the visit was due since long as Ms. Banerjee who strongly believes in the teaching and philosophy of Swami Vivekanada was unable to visit Belur Math owing to her hectic schedule.
Chief Minister sanctioned one-crore-rupees towards the restoration and renovation work at the Belur Math. After the meeting, Ms. Mamata Banerjee left for the Sri Ramakrishna Temple where she offered prayers.
