We have announced to close Shirdi against rumours from January 19. A meeting of villagers will be convened Saturday evening to discuss the issue. Devotees will not face any difficulty if they come to Shirdi,” B Wakchaure of Saibaba Sansthan Trust was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

The administrative body of Sai Baba’s Samadhi has staged a protest against the CM’s comment claiming that there is no proof to declare Pathri as Sai Baba’s birthplace. The committee added that Sai Baba has never disclosed his birthplace or religion in his life.
