Scam in ABC Program in Shirdi!

3rd June 2022 – Shirdi, Maharasthra, India

After many complaints from locals, volunteers, and Alion Institute, the agency, called Utkarsh did not improve their work regarding neglecting the stray dogs in Shirdi. With the help of our partners Sai Animal Care Shirdi, Hope & Animal Trust, and the locals, we carefully collected credible evidence of starving and neglecting animals and ask PFA Organization Mrs. Maneka Gandhi for urgent help and proper guidance.

On the 3rd of June, dedicated volunteers from Sai Baba Animal Care Shirdi confront the responsible manager of Utkarsh Organization. Together with the CEO, Mr. Kakasaheb from Shirdi Municipality walk to their tent and politely ask for a chief veterinarian and the necessary document of all allegedly operated stray dogs. They instantly notice that the dogs had been in cages for weeks, some of them were without water others were without food, paralyzed dogs were neglected, and the manager couldn’t present all the documents.

Mrs. Maneka Gandhi (an environmentalist and an animal rights activist. She is present is the Union minister for women and child development in the Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government at the Centre.), and the CEO of Shirdi Municipality agreed the funds for Utkarsh Foundation must be stopped immediately, and a proper inquiry should be carefully conducted.
