“The committee was held for the topic of Arth Kumbh Mela. There are many fake baba in the society and we are upset because most of these so called babas are being defamed. They are not baba and after thinking on this, we have listed a few who should not be called one,” he said addressing the media.

“I request the government to investigate on these hypocrite babas and put them in jail and we beware everyone to be safe from these babas. Their assets must also be probed” Giri said.
