"It is shocking to see that central government spent almost Rs 1315.83 crore. Which means the government spends Rs 3.65 crore per day. That's a huge amount but they have given just Rs 600 crore to Kerala state which is in distress due to floods," said Desai.

Let us not make comparisons as expenses depend on various considerations.   Compare this with past Govt expenditure.  I personally feel that still most of the very good schemes ad'vertised by Government is still not known to even educated persons and advertisement purpose is not for publicity alone, to publicise those schemes that are helpful to common man.

Comparing this publicity for sake of reaching to common man should not be compared by a natural calamity when central govt strictly stated that it is immediate assistance and further assistance can be sought on estimation of loss.   The central government assistance through Navy and Army can not be converted to money.  If you calculate such expenditure the expenditure exceeeds Rs.1000 crores.
