(1) Gandhiji cannot give any desicion an cLosing of Prakashan Mandir. In Gandhiji's view nobody should be stopped from courting arrest, so as to carry on publication. But that work is to be handed over to somebody else who wanted to do it. Considering all the relevant factors one can deside in his own way. Premitted to ignore Gandhiji's opinion. One could do according to the best of one's thoughts. In case of difference of opinion Gandhiji's decision may be sought Not to do anything in haste. Mahadevbhai's view (Mahadevbhai was in Jail) may not to be different.

Gandhiji says that people are not careful in handling the relief funds. There was a tendency to mix up reconstruction work with relief work without tapping other sourees for reconstruction work, they just spend finds for reconstruction work even though they are meant for relief work. Relief work was also undertaken in many cases with political motives. Bulgeting becomes meaniugless when Presidents of the Committees are persuaded to give blank cheques. Some executive control over such things is absolutely necessary.
