Addressing presspersons here on Tuesday night, the Acharya advocated laws in all the States on the lines of the Tamil Nadu legislation to prevent forcible conversions. To a question on the controversy over the Congress president, Sonia Gandhi, a foreigner by birth, becoming Prime Minister, he said: ``If people choose her, who are we to oppose? It is, however, for the politicians to address this issue''.
The Acharya opposed construction of new temples and said many temples were in a dilapidated condition. ``Let us renovate these temples first.''
The Kanchi Peetam would start 50 schools in different parts of the country. The syllabus would be the one adopted by the Government with provision for moral teaching. A 120-bed hospital for eye and orthopaedic patients would be built in Guntur.
