After his demise, his wife and followers have carried on with the initiative of distributing food among the poor by running community kitchens.

“These (lockdown-like) restrictions have created hardship for the poor by robbing them of livelihood opportunities...We are trying to help them by providing food packets to at least 1,200 people belonging to the marginalised sections (in a day),” said Nandita.
