Asha Jeevan home and care giving centrefor senior citizens opened its new wing "Ashvasan" on Wednesday and was inaugurated by governor T N Chaturvedi.

The new wing situated on the second floor of Asha Jeevan at Gottigere, will house 28 senior citizens who will be looked after with the 72 inmates of Asha Jeevan.

A 100-year-old resident of the association Gopal Iyengar was felicitated by the governor T N Chaturvedi on the occasion.

Reacting to the founder trustee's statement that no financial help was forthcoming from the government for them, Chaturvedi said the guidance rules for sanctions to non-government organisations (NGOs) needed to be rationalised with sensitivity and understanding of their problems.
