    The Annual General Body Meeting

    SOURASHTRA MADHYA SABHA Held on 24th August, 2014

    The Annual General Body Meeting combined with the Executive Committee Meeting of the Sourashtra Madhya Sabha were held on Sunday, 24th August, 2014 at Papanasam (Tirunelveli).

    On behalf of KUSO, Bangalore, Sri T.S.Jayabalan, General Secretary (also E.C. member of Madhya Sabha) and myself took part in the meeting.

    A brief report is given below: The meeting commenced at 10-30 a.m. with prayer and flag hoisting.

    Then welcome address and Activity report by President and General Secretary followed.

    The President spoke about attempts made to get the funds due from KLN Engineering. Sri P.G.M. Thulasiram requested Sri M.S. Ramalingam, as a political leader to help the community. Sri M.S. Ramalingam wanted unity in each town to be promoted. Sri V.G. Ramdoss felt that new members enrolment was with the forthcoming elections in view.

    Sri Easwaramoorthy wanted at least one lakh Life members to be enrolled and E.C. members to be increased to one thousand. He said that the Easa Engineering College was offering free education including boarding and lodging to deserving Sourashtra students.

    Sri K.B.Radhakrishnan, Sri N.M.R. Jawahar Babu and Mr. Kumaresan spoke a few words. (As the meeting of the Sourashtra Educational Confederation was being held simultaneously in the adjacent hall, most of the above speakers left immediately after their talk and after being given shawls.)

    Then the General Body topics were taken up. On behalf of KUSO Sri K.V.Pathy presented a Memorandum asking for amendments to the Sabha Rules to make it FULLY DEMOCRATIC and a mass organization. The amendments proposed were - 1. To declare ALL sourashtrians (with Voters I.D.Card/AADHAAR Card) as Life members of

    the Sabha. 2. To collect a Nominal Life membership fee of Rs.10 (Rupees Ten only) 3. to declare ALL Life members as eligible to contest any election of the Sabha, including

    E.C., Office bearers posts etc. Sri Pathy also said that this petition has been signed 'on line' by 125 Sourashtrians from

    India (many E,C. members and others like Sri Shriram Shekher, Sri Niranjan Kumar, Sri N.S.R.Santharam, Sri O.S.Subramanian, Sri Jaya Rajan, Dr. Damodaran, Prof. C.S.Krishanmoorthy etc.) and abroad (USA,UK, Canada, Australia, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia and Thailand) . The copy of the signatories list was handed over to the President of Sourashtra Madhya Sabha.

    When these proposals were made by me, there was loud applause from the General Body supporting the same. The Office bearers said these amendmends will be considered and brought forward in the next Annual General Meeting.

    The President wanted the forth coming Elections to be postponed until the 'handing over' from the previous Finance Cell. The General Body objected to such postponement. Then the President agreed to have the Elections in Nov./December 2014. Further felicitations followed to many people. The meeting ended with National Anthem.
