The tussle between the two warring factions of Knitwear Club lead by president Darshan Dawar and chairman Vinod Thapar has become uglier as the latter has complained to the deputy commissioner of Ludhiana that Dawar started a bank account illegally without taking a proper permission from him.
Dawar has also reacted to the complaint stating that while the actual bank account of the club was seized due to a legal fight between the two factions, another account was opened after it was approved in the general meeting of the club that is held after consultation of the president and the general secretary.
Thapar had submitted to the deputy commissioner Rajat Agarwal that Dawar “illegally opened a bank account in the name of Knitwear Club with State Bank of Patiala,Sunder Nagar, by giving his own residential address, showing to be the address of the club.
“However, on our representation made to State Bank of Patiala, the operation of the account has been stopped by the said bank,” states the letter submitted by Thapar.
Interestingly, the election of the club were due and Dawar had on May 8 given a presentation to Rajat Agarwal and requested him to hold elections under his supervision.
Dawar said that after the account of the club was seized due to the legal suit, there was no money to pay for various government and other bills. “It was at that time when we decided to start a new bank account in the name of the club so that these expenses could be met with,” said Dawar.
He said that initiation of a bank account was first passed in the general house meeting and only then the account was opened. Hinting towards Thapar, Dawar said, “Some people are creating problems so that elections of the club could not take place.”
