A day after the will of spiritual leader Sathya Sai Baba surfaced, the trust managing his vast empire said it would respect its provisions and would continue to take his mission forward.
Sathya Sai Central Trust member and Sai Baba’s nephew R.J. Ratnakar told some Telugu television channels in the pilgrim town of Puttaparthi in Andhra Pradesh’s Anantapur district that he respected the deed as it carried the signature of the late spiritual leader. He clarified that after Sai Baba passed away last year, the trust had been trying to continue the charity works. Ratnakar said every paisa would be used for the trust activities.
The deed document of 1967 and registered in Mumbai was made public Sunday, allegedly by Sai Baba’s caretaker Satyajit Salian.The deed was signed by two witnesses, including Indulal Shah, one of the trustees. The document was reportedly presented during a meeting of the trust in July this year.
