Mirchi Baba expelled from Akhada; probe on

Monday, 27 May 2019 | PNS | Haridwar

Mahamandaleshwar Vairagyanand Giri alias Mirchi Baba who had conducted a Hawan with about five quintals of red chili for victory of Congress candidate Digvijaya Singh in the Bhopal Lok Sabha constituency has been expelled from the Niranjani Akhada.

The president of Akhil Bharatiya Akhada Parishad (ABAP) Mahant Narendra Giri has said that Mirchi Baba who had performed the hawan for victory of the Congress candidate from Bhopal has been expelled from Niranjani Akhada. A probe is on and very soon the committee formed will submit its report.

Narendra Giri reached Niranjani Akhada on Sunday evening and launched an inquiry into the whereabouts of Mahamandaleshwar Vairagyanand Giri alias Mirchi baba who is reported to be missing since the declaration of the election results in which Singh lost to BJP’s Pragya Thakur. The ABAP president said that saints have to look into the interest and welfare of all. A special investigation committee has been formed to look into the matter.

He said ascetics are beyond the political parties and should not work for the victory or defeat of any contestant. He also cautioned that ascetics must keep themselves away from superstitious rituals.

It is pertinent to mention here that after using five quintals of red chili in the hawan, Mirchi Baba had claimed that Digvijaya Singh was sure to win the election. In case he lost the election, the ascetic had declared that he would take Samadhi at the very spot where he had conducted the ritual.
