HC disposes off petition against Kurien

Written by: Staff

Ahmedabad, Mar 20: Gujarat High Court today disposed of a petition challenging Dr Verghese Kurien's continuance as the president and director of Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketting Federation (GCMMF), on the ground that he was co-opted and not an elected director.

The petition was rendered infructuous after Dr Kurien announced his resignation from the post. His counsel read out his resignation letter in the presence of single judge bench of Justice Jayant Patel.

The petition had been filed by Mohan Bhawrwad, the Chairman of Ahmedabad District Milk Producers Union, seeking Dr Kurien's ouster.

His counsel Bharat Patel said as per an amendment in 1982 in the section 74 (C) of the Cooperative Society Act, a director of the cooperative has to be elected. So Dr Kurien's continuance in the post since his co-option in 1973, had been challenged, he added.
