Money that was collected from each volunteer i.e. Rs1400/- and whenever required some amount is charged or asked for official work but for e.g if we calculate the total amount for 32,000 (In Assam only) people that each volunteer had contributed, it will be 32,000*1400=44800000 which is very big amount. So, my question is where does this money goes? Do really the president and his/her members are working for the people or just making money from this issue?
