Subject : Indiscipline by certain Circle Office Bearers – regarding.
It is reported that Shri Jamaluddin, Divisional Secretary, Ernakulum Division of our Union had called for the Divisional Conference on 24th April, 2016 along with all other allied FNPO Unions for disposal of agenda including election of office bearers for the year 2016-2018. In the capacity of the Circle Secretary and as per the invitation for joint conference by Reception Committee, the undersigned attended the open session of the conference. The Divisional Secretary was not present at the venue of the open session.
During the open session and thereafter the Divisional Conference of P-IV Union continued after lunch break. When the undersigned tried to involve in the Divisional Conference, the Divisional President along with Divisional Secretary had asked me for vacation of the conference room otherwise they will not conduct proceedings and also informed that they themselves will hand over office bearers list which should be approved by the undersigned. For the sake of peaceful conference I left the conference room and till this time no intimation regarding the outcome of the conference has been received by the Circle Committee. Only 17-18 ordinary members were present in the conference out of more than 125 members of the Division.
Of late, it has come to understand that Shri Jamaluddin, Divisional Secretary along with Shri Mohanachandran (Retired PA), who always tried to involve in the affairs of our Union at various stages in the past and destroyed the image and unity of our Union, attended the conference of GDS Union of Shri Mahadevaiah at Palakkad in the morning hours and returned to Ernakulum to the afternoon session. Shri K.V.Devan, President of the Circle Committee has also addressed that conference as per the Newspaper Report which is enclosed herewith for perusal.
The activity of ShriK.V.Devan, Circle President and ShriJamaluddin, Divisional Secretary of the Ernakulam Division as per the advice of ShriMohanachandran are total indiscipline and unwarranted. Actually they should show the integrity towards our affiliated Union keeping aside all differences within the leaders of our Union and sister Unions and act as a role model for the rank and file. Since the leading Newspapers have published the report of conference of our opponent GDS Union, the letter and spirit of the call made by the Secretary General and both the General Secretaries of the P-III & P-IV union have been defeated and tarnished the image of our NUGDS. The participation of a responsible office bearer of our Union in the opponent GDS Union of Mahadevaiah have been viewed seriously by our individual members and they are pressing hard for necessary disciplinary action against these individuals. The physical presence of these individuals in the propagation for enrolling the membership during the present verification process, may be because of personal enmity with any of the office bearers of NUGDS but this is not the right time to show the indifferences within our rank and file by the Circle responsible office bearers which may lead to defection from NUGDS. Every Division except Ernakulam and Palakkad are working together without any difference for enrolling membership to NUGDS and also working for the success of the ensuing joint Circle Conference of FNPO at Calicut from 21-23rd May, 2016.
After the last conference under the guidance and supervision of Shri K.Sivadasan, General Secretary our union affairs was going very peacefully, but under the mastermind of Shri Mohanachandran,ShriK.V.Devan and Shri Jamaluddin have been trying to divide in groups within our rank and file which is unwarranted and cannot be pardoned.
In view of the above, necessary action may be initiated against Shri K.V.Devan, President of Circle Union to desist from such activities which would be helpful for our opponent Unions and laugh on us for non-action for in-disciplinary activities by the responsible leaders.
With kind regards,
