I was watching the live video stream of the inauguration of the Baghola, Haryana free hospital of Muddenahalli group, Sri Sathya Sai Sanjeevani International Center for Child Heart care and Research Opening, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXVcacKBG_4.
My Net connection was a little flaky so there were some breaks in the stream feed. But I got the general idea of what was going on there.
The important thing to share is that PM Shri Narendra Modi DID NOT SHARE the stage with Madhusudan Rao Naidu!!! He gave a talk via video-link where he was very appreciative of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba and the activities Bhagavan inspired. He gave his best wishes and praise for the free service to humanity that the Chhattisgarh hospital of Muddenahalli group has done, and the service that this new free hospital in Haryana will do. PM Modi also offered his respects to Sri Indulal Shah and another person (Sri Naik?).
PM Modi, speaking in Hindi, said that Swami is available to us in 'sukskma roop' (subtle form) and 'har pal me' (at every moment). I think the Sukshma roop reference of PM Modi was a generic one indicating that after Swami's Mahasamadhi, Swami is now accessible to us in a subtle way (formless way, shall I say) and is available at every moment. I think it will be an extraordinary stretch of interpretation if Muddenahalli group attempts to use these words of PM Modi to mean that PM Modi has acknowledged the claim of Madhusudan Rao Naidu and has acknowledged the so called Muddenahalli based 'subtle body' which is visible and audible and converses only through Madhusudan Rao Naidu.
There was NO REFERENCE that I could catch in PM Modi's speech to either Madhusudan Rao Naidu or to Shri B.N. Narasimhamurthy.
I plan to view the video that Muddenahalli group will put up (after the live event is over) to confirm what I have written above.
Unless I missed something in my flaky net connection live stream video OR there is some other claim that Muddenahalli group may say about some private interview that PM Modi had with Madhusudan Rao Naidu, it seems to me that PM Modi has DONE NOTHING in this inauguration event to PROMOTE or ENDORSE the FALSE CLAIM of Madhusudan Rao Naidu of being a so called communicator of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. I find that to be a great relief! But, as I said, I need to confirm it from a proper viewing of the video.
In the associated Facebook post of mine,
https://www.facebook.com/ravi.s.iyer.7/posts/1824219464461289, a Muddenahalli group supporter wrote, "He already knows about the happenings in the subtle form and has also had a personal interaction during his last visit to another hospital", before going on to say that it can be ignored and that the focus should be on Swami's wonderful mission and so on. I (Ravi) responded as follows (slightly edited):
Sairam brother --name-snipped--. Thanks for your comment.
What is on record is that while Hon'ble PM Narendra Modi and Hon'ble chief minister of Chhattisgarh Raman Singh have been appreciative of Muddenahalli group's service to humanity, neither of them have said anything whatsoever publicly about Madhusudan Rao Naidu's CLAIM of being a so called communicator of a so called subtle body of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. For officials who hold elected and powerful public offices like PM Modi or CM Raman Singh, it is their publicly expressed statements that are vital.
You have claimed a private meeting between PM Modi and Madhusudan Rao Naidu during PM Modi's visit to Naya Raipur hospital some months (perhaps a year) ago. That does not really matter to me as it is not verifiable and one does not know what PM Modi thought about Madhusudan Naidu's claim, after the supposed private meeting.
I will get really worried if PM Modi or CM Raman Singh or Union ministers Ananth Kumar and Prakash Jawadekar publicly endorse the FALSE CLAIM of Madhusudan Rao Naidu. By Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba of Puttaparthi's Grace, that has NOT HAPPENED so far, as far as I know.
