Shimla Ice Skating Club elections on October, 27, 2013
SHIMLA: Ice Skating Club is among one of the best known places in Shimla. This coming Sunday there is going to be elections. It is allegedly said by Peter Ta Tung one of the lifetime member of Shimla Ice Skating Club that the Annual General Meeting of Skating club is a mockery and an eye wash.
AS per the societies registration act, a minimum of 23 to 46 days notice has to be given before the annual general meeting of any club registered under this act. Infact as per the lce Skating club constitution a minimum of 10 days notice has to be served in the same regard as per (Clause XXXII (b)).
However the fact is that this year the AGM is notified on Oct 22, 2013 with date of Filling nomination on Oct 24, 2013 and taking back of nomination on Oct 25, 2013. The election date has been announced on Oct 27, 2013 along with Annual General Meeting, which makes it a period of 6 days which is not sufficient for conducting healthy and fair elections.
What has been going on in the club definitely needs some serious just scan so that the proud legacy of Himachal does not come to a dreadful end.
