NONE OF the eight panels that contested the prestigious elections of BHE Thrift and Credit Society could make a clean sweep, as a result of which, there is every possibility that leaders of various panels would be left with no alternative but to compromise.
Meanwhile, hectic exercise has begun for electing office-bearers of the society including president and vice president. Elections for this would be held on January 14.
Over 7000 people are members of the BHE Thrift & Credit Society and 5282 of them exercised their franchise to select from 192 candidates who are in the fray for the prestigious elections. Voting for these elections were conducted on January 7 and final results were announced today.
Those elected as directors included Rajul Agrawal, V S Kathaith, Gautam More, Mahesh Malviya, R K Swarnkar, M K Jain, Dr K Gulati, Kiran Singh and Rajendra Singh Yadav. These results created an interesting situation and the Congress and BJP leaders are likely to enter into politics of the Society because some of the candidates were backed by them.
Four members of the present Board of Directors, including Swarnkar, Jain, Yadav and Kiran Singh, got elected. Malviya and More are Congress-supported whereas Rajul Agrawal and Kathaith are considered to be the supporters of BJP.
Various leaders also started making efforts to woo the wining candidates of other panels so as to get them elected as president of the society.
Since elections for president would be held next month there is every possibility that some of the winning candidates may change their loyalties.
