While the Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim who was convicted and awarded a 20-year sentence for raping two of his own disciples last year, a question arises as to who is now looking after the day-to-day business of the Dera headquarters which is located in Sirsa, Haryana.
After months of uncertainty over Dera's fate, it has now emerged that Naseeb Kaur, the mother of Ram Rahim, is the one who now handles and manages the working of Dera Sacha Sauda headquarters.
According to a report in Times of India, Naseeb Kaur travels to Sirsa from Ram Rahim's ancestral house in a village in Rajasthan's Ganganagar district at least once a week to meet the devotees.
Naseeb Kaur is mostly seen at the Sirsa headquarters on Sundays meeting the followers. The numbers of followers visiting the headquarters for 'naam charcha' (religious discourse) has dipped drastically ever since Ram Rahim was jailed.
Naseeb Kaur, who Ram Rahim used to refer to 'Rajmaata' during his 'preaching sessions', also visits her son regularly at Rohtak's Sunaria jail.
After Ram Rahim's conviction, Naseeb had announced that the next heir in line would be her grandson Jasmeet Insan.
