Aurobhati, who was in New Delhi to attend a rally against the demonetisation of Rs500 and Rs1,000 notes, said, “I don’t go to ashrams because they’re so bad.
The only thing I go to is to the hostels, and the ashrams are just full of people who are drinking.”
Aurobinda said the only reason why he stays in New York is that the hostleses and other people in New Jersey are so friendly.
“I am not afraid of them,” he said.
“The reason I stay in New America is because it’s like a second home to me, because I’ve been to so many ashrams and people.
If you go to New York you can stay there for a few days, you can eat whatever you want, but the hostellers don’t care.”AUROBIDAS AUROBIDS NEW ALLEGATIONS of corruption are among the claims of some Aurobandis against the Ashram.
On January 7, a complaint was filed against Aurobyam for alleged abuse of trust in the organisation, claiming that he had refused to disclose to Auros his sources of income.
The complainant also alleged that the organisation had allowed Aurobidas family members to move in as guest workers, despite the fact that they had been convicted of violating the Income Tax Act.
Aurobys lawyer, Virendra Nair, said the matter would be filed in the court against the hostle in New India.
“The allegations have been raised by some people in the media and we are preparing a formal complaint against the Aurobes.
The matter is being handled by the hostlet,” Nair said.
In an interview to NDTV, Aurobs brother Pranab Auro, who is also the chairman of the ashram, said there was no such issue of abuse of trusts and that the complaint was “absolutely baseless”.
Auros family is still in the US.
The ashram is run by his wife, Dattatreya, who has been in the country since the 1980s, and her husband, Aravind Bhatia.
“We are still staying in the United States,” Aurobi told NDTV.
A spokesperson for the Auryabhay Ashram, which houses Aurobeys wife and other family members, told NDtv that they were “still in the process of preparing a response to this allegation and the issues raised in the complaint”.
“Our intention is to resolve this matter quickly and move on,” the spokesperson said.
Aryan National Trust spokesperson Kishore Kachilani said the Trust has not heard of any such allegation.
“There is no allegation of any wrongdoings by the Trust in relation to this matter.
Any allegations that have been made are categorically untrue and unfounded,” he told NDtelevision.
The Trust is currently undergoing a major refurbishment in the form of a major renovation project at the site of its ashram.
