Srimad Sarathi Baba is exposed by Prameya News 7 channel on Tuesday. The channel aired an exclusive story that could well establish the fact that despite his godly attires, his real self is absolutely in contrary to what he appears.
The television channel showed that the self-styled godman had checked into a hotel in Banjara Hills of Hyderabad in the first week of July with a woman, who he introduced as his wife at the reception counter.
Sarathi Baba has landed into a dispute by his one-time ‘sevak’, Kailash Chandra Mallick. In an exclusive interview to News7, he said that – Baba loves to eat non-vegetarian food with liquor and spends hours with girls.
Commenting on the TV channel’s report, Sarathi Baba said: “It is a well-orchestrated conspiracy to tarnish my image. I am clean. My devotees would continue to adore me as they have been doing for years together.”
News7 also aired exclusive pictures of Hotel Golkonda of Hyderabad where Srimad Sarathi checked in with a girl in question in a Star Hotel’s room no 607. Obviously the lady checked in was identified as wife. His menu included ‘tandoor chicken’, ‘foreign liquor’ and many more.
Tension ran high at Barimula village on the outskirts of Kendrapada town after 10 persons were injured in police lathi-charge outside the ashram of Sarathi Baba on Wednesday evening. Prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code have been imposed in the area.
However, this is not Baba’s first brush with controversy. He was in the news in 2012 when he allegedly tried to grab government land for expansion of the Barimula ashram. The villagers vehemently opposed the forcible occupation of their land that had to be vacated following the administration’s intervention.
Before people of Kendrapada requested their MP Baijayant Panda and his wife Jagi Mangat Panda to stop broadcasting of a fraud Baba like Santosh Raul alias Sarathi Baba’s ‘Nitibani’ in ‘Prarthana’ TV channel, a sister concern of OTV.
Sources said around 500 devotees had been present inside the ashram since Tuesday evening to protect the Baba, who allegedly uses cheap magic tricks to hypnotise his followers.
A college dropout, Sarathi, donned the mantle of Baba in the 90s gaining popularity through his devotional concerts in the town. It didn’t take long for his following to swell with people making a beeline to Sarathi Ashram at Barimula village.
