The district’s Municipality Vice Chairman, PSM Hussain, said that the Ashram’s initiative is helping lakhs of women and as such, is an inspiring example for all of society. He emphasised how projects like AmritaSREE are motivating women to gain self-confidence and independence.   

Also speaking on the occasion, KPCC member Adv M Liju said that the AmritaSREE scheme is an invaluable aid to ordinary women in need of support to make a living for themselves and their families.  

BJP State Spokesperson Sandeep Vachaspathi, who delivered the congratulatory speech, said that Amma is a practical embodiment of India’s spiritual resolve to serve the poor and needy. Such relief programs run by the Math are reaching lakhs of people and changing their lives for the better.
