Use of Sri Sathya Sai Trust Buildings for New District Opposed, and Other Teething Problems

Posted by eileenweed on April 23, 2022

There was jubilation in Puttaparthi after the creation of a new district was announced, however moral questions, lack of infrastructure, suffering officers who don’t even have chairs to sit on, and other teething problems abound. What is the use of the Central Trust and property developers rejoicing at the renewed political interest in the area, when the common man is suffering so much?

“Use of Sri Sathya Sai Trust Buildings for New District Opposed”
March 27, 2022
This article describes complaints by advocate J. Prathapa Reddy, who points out that donations of devotees built the buildings owned by the ashram’s Central Trust, and how can they be used for government offices? He states: ““As an ardent devotee of Sri Sathya Sai Baba, I am pained to see that the Mirpuri College of Music, Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning’s Vice-Chancellor and Director’s bungalows, COVID hospital, old police station building, Sri Gayatri House, and Sri Sathya Sai Deena Janoddharana Scheme buildings have been allocated for the government offices,” he said.”

One wonders if the Trust is collecting rent for these now-government offices in devotee-built buildings, or if they are just providing it for future political favors??

Teething problems likely for govt. offices at Puttaparthi
March 29, 2022
In this article, Puttaparthi locals bring up perfectly sensible concerns regarding government offices settling into the small town. “The streets around Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s ashram are narrow, and with the influx of people, the town will begin to witness congestion as well as a rise in noise and air pollution, feel locals….Residents are worried that the town, home to Prashanti Nilayam and famed for its atmosphere of serenity and spirituality, will lose its charm once the new district administration begins functioning, due to the thousands of people who would converge on the new headquarters daily to get their work done.”

Shocking details in the article reveal that one block of the “Sai Mirpuri College of Music” (built in 2000), has been vacated to house the District and Joint Collectors, and although the SSS Institute of Higher Learning (deemed University) will continue to hold classes in two blocks, the middle block will house further key offices – including tiny rooms set aside for the Rural Water Supply and other departments! Furthermore, Government employees in Anantapur have been advised to bring their own tables and computers from their present offices when they are transferred to Puttaparthi!

“Lack of Facilities at the Sathya Sai Collectorate”
April 22, 2022
This videodescribes how, over three weeks after the formation of the new district, the new Sri Sathya Sai District offices in Andhra Pradesh are mostly just empty rooms – they have no chairs even for the officers to sit in. Government officials are seen sitting on mats on the floor and writing documents with pen and paper. At a function to complain, there were no suitable facilities even to make complaints. One upset gentleman is seen begging authorities to provide furniture and other office supplies that are needed. Another individual is seen describing how most of the so-called government offices of this new district have locked doors, and even when the rooms were open, there was no one in authority who could help with any official duties. He stressed that so many ordinary people are suffering because no work is being done.
