HC disbands Shirdi Sai Baba Trust again
Shirdi: In a setback to the Maharashtra government, the Aurangabad bench of the Bombay High Court, Friday, ordered the disbanding – for the second time – of the Shirdi Sai Baba Trust
The High Court in its March 13 verdict dissolved the seven year old trust comprising 15 trustees for not complying with the constitution of the trust which entails that the term of the body cannot be more than three years.
However, the state government reappointed former Congress MLA Jayant Sasane as the chairman of the trust on March 27.
Ahmad Nagar district NCP president Ghanshyam Shelar has been appointed as the vice-president of the trust which manages the affairs of one of the richest shrines in the country.
In the 15-member trust, Congress has six members and NCP nine.
Other members of the new trust comprise Maharashtra Agriculture Minister Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil, Vilas Kote, Shailesh Kute, Surendra Kharde, Mininanath Pandey, Ajit Kadam, Patangrao Shelke, Snehalata Kolhe, Rajendra Pipada, Suresh Wadhava, Namdev Gunjal, Prakash Nandurkar and Sumitra Kote-a nominated member.
The trust was granted extension for the second term in 2007, but failed to appoint a new body as mandated by the norms.
