Controversial self-styled godman, Nityananda, whose appointment as head of the Madurai Adheenam has triggered a controversy, has said he would ensure complete transparency in the functioning of the ancient Saivite mutt.


Talking to reporters in Madurai on Sunday, he challenged other pontiffs in the state to bring similar kind of transparency in their functioning.

He claimed that as many as 50 organisations, including Hindu outfits, have come out in support of his appointment and decided to fight legally against the 'Madurai Adheenam Retrival committee' speardheading protests against his appointment.
