The Sathya Sai Central Trust on Monday submitted a voluminous report to the state government n the Trust’s activities, financial transactions, properties and other issues.
The Trust’s financial controller sent the over 500-page report to Dr K.V. Ramanachary, principal secretary to government, revenue (endowments) on Monday afternoon.
“We received the report from the Satya Sai Central Trust. It’s a bulky report pertaining to the queries sought by the state government. The Trust said it submitted available information to government,” Dr Ramanachary told this newspaper.
When asked if the Trust valued its properties and its worth, Dr Ramanachary said since he was preoccupied he could not go through the report submitted by the Trust.
“I will go through it and see if all the queries sought by the government have been answered. I will then submit a report to the Chief Minister,” he said. “Since the report submitted by Trust is huge; it may take a few days time to go through it.”
The state government asked the Trust on June 27 to give a detailed information on the trust activities, financial dealings and other related matters within 10 days following cash smuggling to the tune of Rs 35 lakh which was recovered by police from two persons coming from Puttaparthi and a spate of reports in the media on shifting of cash, gold, allegations of mismanagement by kin of Sai Baba which created a stir among devotees.
There were demands from some devotees and political parties for take over the Trust. Deccan Chronicle
