ANANTAPUR: Thousands of people from Puttaparthi and surrounding villages, gathered around the Sathya Sai airport near Puttaparthi town in the district on Thursday evening, after an announcement was made in Prashanti Nilayam that Sathya Saibaba would give ‘vishwaroopa darshanam’ in the sky between 7 and 8 pm.

However, the huge crowd had to return disappointed as the announced event did not take place. Sathya Saibaba also went to the airport in a car waited there for about 40 minutes before returning to Prashanti Nilayam. According to the information reaching here, Saibaba did not come out of the car as huge crowds surrounded his vehicle and it was not possible for him to venture out of the vehicle in the absence of any police security or the regular cordoning off of Sathya Sai Sevadal volunteers.
