Posted by robertpriddy on July 9, 2016
Puttaparthi (Anantapur): Sai devotees residing at Rangasai apartment on Chitravati road on Tuesday staged a sit-in on the road demanding officials to take steps to save them from the pig menace. On account of the garbage thrown on the roads, they pointed out that pigs are roaming free on the Chitravati Road posing a potential health hazard to residents of the area.Moreover, the area is reeking in foul smell as residents of the apartments are disposing of garbage near the apartment complex. The devotees say that they are facing untold problems because of the foul smell and pig menace while going and coming from Sai Baba Samadhi daily. They asked the officials to take steps to clear the garbage over night ensure steps to prevent recurrence of such incidents in future.
When the issue was taken to the notice of the municipal commissioner Vijaybhaskar Reddy, he assured the protestors to solve the problem after taking it up with the municipal councillors.
The self-proclaimed almighty god, Sathya Sai Baba, who promised to protect his devotees, especially in the holy precincts of Prashanthi Nilayam is not protecting them from a pig menace! There were always many pigs around but nowadays not enough residents to chase them off, apparently. It is no doubt dangerous, they can be aggressive! Instead of make demands, the devotees should take upon themselves some public ‘selfless service’ to clean up the filthy garbage where the pigs root for food, just as so many Indians do with Sathya Sai Baba Badly Failed. E.g., See Inspiring Tedx Talk On ‘The Ugly Indian’ Movement. Despite the constant talk and boasting of doing selfless service by Sai Baba and his followers, it was quite evident to observers that – even in the heyday – there was relatively little done by the residents or visitors to the ashrams compared to all the overblown publicity about it.
