Is this a power grab by SSSIO leaders?

It is the opposite and is a clear grab for power by the SSSCT. The SSSIO has never interfered with the internal matters of the SSSCT or its appointment of the Trustees.  The SSSIO is united with the SSSCT and SSSSO of India as brothers on the Mission of spreading Sri Sathya Sai Baba's message of Love and Service.  However, the SSSIO cannot work under the SSSCT's control as drafted in the current TOR of the Global Council.
