पुष्पेंद्र के लिए फिर चुनौती बने नदीम

24 को तय होगा, नदीम जीतेंगे या पुष्पेंद्र : नदीम अहमद काजमी कोर्ट में भले ही पुष्पेंद्र कुलश्रेष्ठ के खिलाफ लड़ाई हार गए हों लेकिन वे दिल से अभी नहीं हारे हैं। वे एक और लड़ाई लड़ रहे हैं। इस बार वे सीधे जनता की अदालत में हैं। उन्होंने पुष्पेंद्र कुलश्रेष्ठ को उखाड़ फेंकने के लिए जनता से वोट और सपोर्ट मांगा है। ये जनता कोई और नहीं बल्कि प्रेस क्लब आफ इंडिया, दिल्ली के मेंबर हैं। प्रेस क्लब के सालाना चुनाव सिर पर हैं। नामांकन और नाम वापसी जैसी प्रक्रियाएं पूरी हो चुकी हैं। 24 अक्टूबर को डायरेक्ट वोट पड़ने का काम बाकी है। पुष्पेंद्र कुलश्रेष्ठ अपने पैनल के साथ फिर मैदान में हैं। अध्यक्ष पद के लिए परवेज अहमद मैदान में हैं। पुष्पेंद्र वैसे तो महासचिव पद पर तीन बार जीतकर हैट्रिक पूरी कर चुके हैं लेकिन लगता है उनका मन नहीं भरा है। वे किसी और को महासचिव पद देने के बिलकुल मूड में नहीं हैं।

वे चौथी बार भी महासचिव बनना चाहते हैं। इसीलिए ताल ठोंक कर फिर मैदान में आ डटे हैं। पुष्पेंद्र के पास नदीम अहमद काजमी के आरोपों की काट के लिए सबसे बड़ा हथियार है कोर्ट का फैसला। वे कोर्ट के फैसले के जरिए खुद को बेदाग और नदीम व उनके लोगों को उत्पाती साबित करने में जुट गए हैं। पुष्पेंद्र पर कई तरह के आरोप लगाने वाले और प्रेस क्लब के घपलों-घोटालों का खुलासा करने वाले नदीम अहमद काजमी ने प्रेस क्लब के सभी सदस्यों को एक मेल भेजकर उनसे कई बातें कहीं हैं और कुछ अपील भी की है। आप ये अपील पढ़ना शुरू करें, इससे पहले आपको बता दें कि नदीम अहमद काजमी के पैनल के कौन-कौन लोग किन-किन पदों पर चुनाव लड़ रहे हैं-

प्रेस क्लब के सभी सदस्यों को नदीम अहमद काजमी की तरफ से भेजा गया पत्र…

 

Dear Members,

The Press Club of India is going in for elections at one of its worst times ever. Our reputation is in shreds, our coffers empty and genuine journalists are being shut out by an ever growing strength of members who in no way are even remotely connected to our profession. This has happened over the last three years in the tenure of our current Secretary General who has run the Club in a manner that is not only arbitrary, but also the CEO (as he loves calling himself) of the Club keeps everything secret and does deals that smack of nepotism and invites allegations of corruption.

First and foremost, all principles of accounting have been thrown out of the window. The accounts department is mere spectators who are asked to fill in ledgers months after the transactions are done. Cash amounts far in excess of  Rs 5,000 (the sanctioned amount) are given to select suppliers as payments thus leaving a big loophole for siphoning off money. Clandestine attempts are made at privatizing services of the Club and these deals are done in a hush hush manner. A case in point is the manner in which the services of the Club were sought to be privatized to one Mr Kapoor, who one Sunday along with 40 other impostors entered the Club premises and demanded the keys to our liquor and food stocks be handed over to him. After a massive agitation the Secretary General and the President politely washed their hands off the matter, but no FIR was filed against this so called Mr Kapoor by them. Let us not forget that the Secretary General wastes no time in filing police complaints or FIRs against fellow members at the drop of a hat or goes to the court.

The other matter that begs scrutiny is the illegal manner members have been made, especially ordinary members. In the last two years none of the members made by the Secretary General have been approved by the Managing Committee. This process according to our constitution makes it illegal. Secondly the Secretary General has made members in clear violation of a unanimous decision taken by the last Managing Committee that no ordinary members will be made till the new building is ready. Third, the forms of the members made are kept locked by the Secretary General in his personal possession raising serious questions whether any rules were followed. We raise this question because in a number of cases members have been made, but their joining fees running into huge amounts were not deposited with the office. This raises a pertinent question: Who has siphoned off this money?

We can go on about these evidences of misdeeds and it can run into thousands of pages. In short we can safely say that at present nobody, whether members or the staff are happy with the state of affairs of the Club. That is why we have offered ourselves as an alternative to arrest this slide.

We will change the vicious atmosphere prevailing in the Club and change it into a friendly one. We will do this by dropping all the frivolous cases launched by the Secretary General and thus save lakhs of rupees. Use money saved by this and other accounting methods to clear the backlog of supplier dues so that members get what they order. Improve the furniture so that nails do not pinch us every time we sit in the main hall.

Ensure that the land is finally transferred to us and we get our building before we lose this place. Finally ensure transperancy so that all the members participate in running the Club.

A PANEL THAT STANDS FOR TRANSPARENCY AND CHANGE, PLEASE VOTE AND SUPPORT US IN THE PCI (2009-10) ELECTIONS ON  OCTOBER 24.
