So Pope's deploration can do wonders!

After Popes strong condemnation Manmohan Singh on Thursday described the ongoing violence in Orissa as a “shame on the nation” and is understood to have assured a delegation of church leaders that Rs. 3 lakh would be given as compensation to the families of those killed. I am not sure whether this would be applicable for the seer & the four others of the ashram who were killed earlier.

Briefing mediapersons after meeting the Prime Minister, Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India (CBCI) spokesman Babu Joseph said that besides Dr. Singh’s compensation promise, funds would be released from the Prime Ministers’ Relief Fund for providing relief and rehabilitation to all those affected by the violence.

Since Poe has the ear of Manmohan singh, I think we should request Pope to take up the Ram Sethu and Amarnath issue also with Manmohan singh.
