Sathya Sai Drinking Water project re-inaugurated yet again
Posted by robertpriddy on December 14, 2014
More propaganda on Sai Baba water projects, though the existing ones don’t seem to be doing much! This is the third time in two decades that the Rayalaseema Village Water Project has had to be re-generated. Meanwhile, Puttaparthi is still virtually without its own clean and drinkable water supply.
The water project failed almost immediately after it first became semi-operative, due to kickbacks, entrepreneur and leadership corruption, sub-standard materials due to theft and flawed workmanship. Above all, an unforeseen and drastic drop in the water table causing bore wells to cost most of their capacity if not all. The self-declared omniscient and omnipotent Sai Baba did not have a clue about such problems, as his top engineer Colonel Joga Rao told friends of mine who were working with him to improve sewerage conditions at Prashanthi Nilayam. No maintenance was provided for, so the AP government had to be asked to take over the entire project. Since then other announcements of a complete radical upgrade have been made, but Puttaparthi (which was intended as the No. 1 beneficiary of the project) has dire water shortages to this day.
Well-informed comment from former follower, Srikanth Uppuluri:

This is the result of Showcial work. When work is done only for exhibitionism such results are bound to follow. When people have been coerced into serving him, the impact of that shows on the work they do. Out of their own frustrations, even those that Sai Baba called as close devotees, were involved in embezzlement of funds and kickbacks.
Not only in Puttaparthi, that entire region has problems of both Water as well as Severe Fluorine Content. See report:- http://saibabadeceptions.wordpress.com/2013/09/08/thanks-to-the-sri-sathya-sai-drinking-water-project/
The Avatar said he could transmute earth into sky, but could not solve basic problems of humanity. To this his answers were various – karma, man’s sins, decline of dharma and all his other nonsense. One may wonder why the birth of a Divine being and the associated vibrations has still not helped. Certainly, had he been the Embodiment of Truth and Dharma, there should have been some effect?
