While the Archeological Survey of India was digging out nothing but broken glass bangles and pieces of rusted iron during the excavation inside Raja Rao Ram Baksh Singh fort in Unnoa, Uttar Pradesh, seer Shobhan Sarkar on Thursday claimed that gold would be found only if he was invited to the site.

Making his first public appearance almost two weeks after the excavation started at the fort in Daundiya Kheda, Sarkar said, "The gold would not be found unless I am invited to the site."

Though the officials concerned have not said anything about finding a rock surface during the excavation, Sarkar said that after breaking it (the tough surface) the ASI officers would know the truth about the treasure. Sarkar also told reporters that the truth could have been unearthed had the operation been carried out by the army.

The seer also questioned the ban on media from recording the excavation work, saying, "What work is being done at the excavation site that the media was banned.

Sarkar demanded for a live telecast of the work.
