Privatising temples

PTI reports that the Rajasthan government has decided to privatise some temples in the state because, as per the report, "[t]he state government's budget was meagre and could not maintain over 90,000 temples in the state".

This is news to me. I had no clue that the government maintained so many temples using taxpayer's money. And what I find even more inexplicable is the last line of the report, where the tourism minister of Rajasthan is quoted as saying: "The project does not include any mosque or church."

PS: At least this is one kind of privatisation the left won't oppose.
