The 'bandh' in Shirdi which was observed over the alleged remarks of Maharashtra Chief Minister on the birthplace of Sai Baba's birthplace has been called off.

It all started with Uddav terming Pathri in Parbhani as the birthplace of Sai Baba.

"We have called off the indefinite bandh and Shirdi will be open as normal after 12 tonight. There is a meeting scheduled with Chief Minister tomorrow at 2 pm and we will request him to take back his statement about Saibaba's birthplace. We are not seeking an apology from the CM but all we want is that he should withdraw his statement," Kailash Tope who works in the Sai Baba Sansthan Trust said.

"If there is no positive outcome of tomorrow's meeting locals of Shirdi will decide the future course of action," he added.
