PUDUCHERRY: The sisters, who have been evicted from Sri Aurobindo Ashram-run premises, along with members of civil society organisations on Saturday observed a token fast in front of the BSNL office here demanding the Centre to direct the Puducherry government to take over the administration of the Ashram.

‘Appoint Administrator’
The sisters demanded  the Union government to direct the Puducherry government to appoint an interim administrator immediately to safeguard the interests of Sri Aurobindo Ashram, its devotees and members.

They alleged that donations received from devotees had been misused and inmates who protested against the management were victimised. The Centre should immediately intervene and take over the administration of the Ashram, they said.
