Devotees from all over the world come to Shanishinganapur (Tal. Nevase) to pay homage to Lord Shani. They offer oil and coconut to fulfill their desires. They put money in the donation box. Therefore, Shaneeshwar Devasthan has come to prosperity. Now this institution has been included in the list of rich temples of Ashtavinayak, Shirdi in the state. However, the trustees of the temple have started arbitrary affairs. 19 trustees like grandma and ex have hired their relatives, friends and acquaintances without qualification. He is now being questioned.
The Board of Trustees headed by former NCP MLA Shankarrao Gadakh has been working in the Sansthan for the last 10 years. Earlier, Rs 30-35 crore was in the Sansthan’s coffers. But now the vault is empty. Sometimes helping educational institutions, sometimes using money for dam work, one or more such tricks have taken place in the institute. But now the arbitrary recruitment of grandparents has come to light. Bharatiya Janata Party MLAs Balasaheb Murkute, Nitin Dinkar and Shiv Sena’s Balasaheb Pawar recently met the Minister of State for Law and Justice. After meeting Ranjit Patil, he got acquainted with the management of the institute. Minister Patil directed the Assistant Charity Commissioner to inquire and submit a report.
The current president of the institute is Shivaji Annasaheb Darandale, vice president Sopan Bhagwat Bankar, secretary Balkrishna Ganpat Yelwande, trustee Popat Ramchandra Shete, Nitin Suryabhan Shete, Dadasaheb Dhondiram Darandale, Ranganath Kisan Shete, Bhausaheb Appasaheb Darandale, Rajabhau Gangadhar Darandale and former trustee .) Bhimraj Balwant Darandale, Venunath Yadav Bankar, Raosaheb Bajirao Shete, Raosaheb alias Sahebrao Darandale, Balasaheb Yashwant Borude, Eknath Kisan Darandale, Bhausaheb Shankar Shete, Dagdu Kisan Shete, Suresh Baburao Bankar hired relatives. These are learned up to the tenth, few are graduates. They were hired without qualifications. They were paid a hefty salary. Dinkar has also complained that all the rules were set aside while appointing staff.
Billions spent on advertising
The institute has spent crores of rupees on advertising. Religious institutions are required to provide as many advertisements as necessary. But like the sugar factory, the trustees have arbitrarily spent on advertising. Dinkar has demanded that this type of inquiry should also be done.
