MUNI Shri Nayapadam Sagar Ji Maharaj, famous spiritual guru of the Jain community had gone in Agyatvas for a month when Milind Deora, a Congress candidate from South Mumbai lost his seat in the recent Loksabha election. Infamous as ‘corporate guru’ in saint community Nayapadma Sagar may face police action in future in money scam and also sexual assault cases.
Several chelas (pupils) of Nayapadam Sagar told ABI that he took ‘supari’ so that Milind Deora could win in the recent Loksabha election. Nayapadam had also announced ‘fatwa’ for their community to vote for Milind Deora. Surprisingly, Arvind Sawant, a very weak and unknown face from Shiv Sena party won the election. Feeling shameful Nayapadam Sagar went in Agyatvas for a month.
“This is true that Nayapadam Sagar had gone in Agyatvas at Lonavala for a month after his candidate Milind Deora lost the Lok Sabha seat,” said Hardik Hundiya, a very close pupil of Nayapadam Sagar. “Since then several Jains-even me too-lost faith on Nayapadma Sagar,” Hundiya added.
There was also another bad luck for Nayapadma Sagar. He was promoting controversial builder and Bhartiya Janata Party’s MLA Mangal Prabhat Lodha for Lok Sabha election but Lodha failed to get ticket.
Nayapadma Sagar known as ‘corporate Muni’ in Saint and Jain community is the founder of JITO, JIYO and JIWO and other several organizations. JITO (Jain International Trade Organisation) is a worldwide organisation of businessmen, industrialists, knowledge workers and professionals reflecting the glory of ethical business practices.
JIYO (Jain International Youth Organisation) is proposed to be formed with a view to empower youth in social, economic and academic fields to enhance their self-esteem and self-reliance.
JIWO (Jain International Women Organisation) works under JITO. Established for women, JIWO is a resourceful organization. JIWO has been set-up under the able administration of Sadviji Menashriji. JIWO is determined to achieve its objectives under her guidance.
The corporates, industrialist, businessman and builders are associated with these organizations. They allegedly turn their black money in white through these organizations.
Big businessmen like Motilal Oswal , Hemant Shah, Mangal Prabhat Lodha, Lalit Dangi, Ashish Shah and others are involved in activities of JITO.
Where goes Chaturmas donation?
Nayapadma Sagar organizes Chaturmas functions. The devotees donate crore of rupees. Hardik Hundiya asks where this money goes. Is there any transparency in that money? “Nayanpadma Sagar should clear that where they deposit the money. In personal account or trust account,” said Hundiya.
