Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will visit Puttaparthi on Tuesday to pay his respect to the late Satya Sai Baba.

He will leave in the morning and return the same day after paying his homage to the spiritual leader who died on Sunday, official sources said.

Expressing “deep and profound sadness” over Baba’s death, the Prime Minister had on Sunday said that he was a spiritual leader who inspired millions to lead a moral and meaningful life even as they followed the religion of their choice.

“Sri Sathya Saibaba as a preacher of the highest human values was an iconic figure for over five decades. He endeared himself to the people through various institutions, with headquarters at Prashanthi Nilayam, that promoted egalitarian values, education and public health,” Dr. Singh said.
