BJP for use of MPLADS fund for Leh

At a meeting of the BJP parliamentary party meeting, senior leader L.K. Advani said the party must take up in Parliament the issue of the members contributing from their MPLADS fund towards relief work in the areas hit by mudslides and flash floods in Leh.

Appeal to MPs

He appealed to the party MPs to contribute Rs. 10,000 each from their salaries to relief works in Leh and surrounding areas hit by flash floods.

Sewa Bharati

It was decided that the money would be collected by the parliamentary party and given to Sewa Bharati, an affiliate of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh , rather than being routed through the Prime Minister's or Chief Minister's Relief Fund.
