You are welcome to join our Action Forum and become part of our initiative to fight corruption, end the ongoing crisis and get the plots registered in favour of the genuine members.
We keep close check on the functioning of the Society and bring misdeeds of the corrupt to the knowledge of the appropriate authorities from time to time. Check out some of the important facts and documents-> pertaining to the activities detrimental to the cause of the members of the Society.
Eye opener for the members to carefully use their voting rights in the ensuing elections.
The Society/ Department had declared some of the eligible members not genuine as according to them these members had been enrolled after the so called General Body Meeting held on 06-Oct-1996. The matter had been taken up for revision before the Hon'ble Finance Commissioner and Principal Secretary, Govt. of Haryana, which came up for hearing on 07-Oct-2011.
The Hon’ble Finance Commissioner after hearing the case stayed the operation of so called Resolution dated 06-Oct-1996 and ordered Status-quo. The next date of hearing for final disposal of case has been fixed for 18th October 2011.
The Hon'ble High Court of Punjab and Haryana in its judgement dated 10th Feb 2011 had directed the Returning Officer to prepare a fresh voter list after hearing the objections of the parties and also consider the validity and legality or otherwise of the alleged resolution dated 6.10.1996 in preparing the new voters' list.
We had sought information under the RTI Act 2005 on the above two issues. The Asst. Registrar of Cooperative Societies, Gurgaon in his reply to the same has informed that the process of preparing voter list is On and after the list is prepared objections will be invited from the members. As regards the alleged resolution dt. 6/10/1996 the Asst. Registrar has informed that no orders have yet been issued on the alleged resolution and that no copy of such resolution is available in their office and they are simply relying on some press release in the newspapers, which is not relevant in this context.
The Action Forum had filed 4 writ petitions before the Hon'ble High Court of Punjab & Haryana pointing out many irregularities commited by the returning officer, while preparing the Voters list for the elections.
You may be aware that the returning officer had mentioned in the election schedule 'Condition No. 3 - In Accordance with the Haryana Cooperative Societies Act, 1984 Section 20D; no member of a Cooperative Society shall exercise the right of a member unless he has made all payments due from him to the society.' but he had displayed a list of voters containing more than 9000 names (including large number of people who have only paid Rs. 200), which was in contravention with the condition no. 3 of the schedule of the elections. Infact, as per this condition only such voters who have made full payments towards the cost of the plot were entitled to excise the voting rights and contest the elections.
The Hon'ble High Court admitted our writs and decided as follows - "In the light of the aforesaid reasons, the instant writ petitions are accepted with costs. Consequently, the inpugned election programme, impugned order and voters' list are hereby set aside. The Returning Officer is directed to prepare a fresh voters' list as defined under rule 2(g) of Appendix A and Part - I of the Rules and section 20(d) of the Act, afer hearing the objections of the parties and then to start the election process in accordance with law as expeditiously as possible. He will also consider the validity and legality or otherwise of the alleged resolution dated 6.10.1996 in preparing the new voters' list in view of the aforesaid observations."
Election meeting of the Saraswati Kunj Co-op. Hs./Bldg. Society Members Action Forum (Regd.) was held today at Jangid Brahmin Samaj Math, Vasant Kunj New Delhi. Though the courts judgement postponing the elections upto 14th Feb 2011 was declared, large number of members attended the meeting and future strategies were chalked out.
The Managing Committee Elections scheduled for 31st Jan 2011 have been stayed by Hon'ble High Court of Punjab & Haryana. Further dates shall be intimated as and when fixed.
Certain persons have formed 'Saraswati Kunj Justice Forum' and convened a meeting today for which repeated SMS were sent to members, mainly with the purpose of creating confusion by giving call that 'Come if you need your plots'. Our Action Forum has nothing to due with the so called Forum which has been created a couple of days back only with an eye on the ensuing elections.
Some of the members giving such calls are perhaps forgetting that they remained in the outgoing Management Committee for 4 years but failed to do anything regarding the welfare of members of the society till the date of their removal. Infact they were removed as they allegedely failed to deliver.
Election symbols alloted to the contesting members as under:
1. Mr. Raj Pal Madan - Car
2. Mr. Harjeet Hoon - Sewing Machine
3. Mr. Gaurav Kalra - Football
4. Mrs. Sonal Malik - Telephone
