Andhra to give Rs 5,000 to all places of worship

Amaravati, April 20 (IANS) Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, here on Monday, announced that all mosques, temples and churches in the state would be given Rs 5,000 assistance.

The Chief Minister said his government belonged to all sections of people and had been implementing schemes for the welfare of people irrespective of religion, caste and region.
