An Open Letter to new PCI president Shri Gautam Lahiri

Dear Sir,

Please accept my Durga Puja and Dussehra greetings.

Congratulations on your resounding victory. I impose great trust in your able leadership as president of the Press Club of India (PCI). You have earned respect and admiration all these years through your sheer hard work and integrity. But, Sir, at PCI you have succeeded something which I would describe as a “bed of thorns”. The erstwhile PCI Secretary-General has left behind him a legacy of falsehood, distrust, and fraud played by him on the Club, in general, and members, in particular.

I am sure you must be aware that the erstwhile Secretary-General gave Club membership to undeserving people all these years just to satiate his lust of cheap vote-bank politics. His shamelessness was at its nadir this year when he did not even care to display the list of new members, perhaps for fear of being exposed.

Considering the high standards of journalism you have set all these years before us, I would expect that you make sure the list of new PCI members (made earlier this year) is properly displayed both at the Club’s notice board and website. This would enable all PCI members to know the ‘credentials’ of the new members. As president of the PCI you have all the powers to do the above mentioned. It is also expected of you that you would not allow this practice (of awarding PCI membership to undeserving people) to continue during your tenure as PCI president.

Also, I would like to draw your kind attention towards a number of false affidavits and forged documents (i.e. minutes of meetings) which the erstwhile Secretary-General produced before different courts of law in Delhi in cases filed by PCI members on the Club. Exercising the powers bestowed on you as PCI president, please look into all these acts of fraud committed by the erstwhile Secretary-General, thereby ensuring that JUSTICE IS NEITHER DELAYED NOR DENIED to PCI members.

Sir, today is Dussehra. This festival symbolises triumph of Good over Evil. May this spirit prevail inside the Press Club of India too…under your able leadership!!

Regards.

SAVE THE PRESS CLUB OF INDIA, VOTE FOR CHANGE ON OCTOBER 1, 2016

We often talk of Vote-Bank politics when we discuss Indian politics. And, we journalists are always highly critical of such ways of politics. But, quite interestingly, the greatest hub of journalists where most from our fraternity feel free to sit and discuss the country’s politics, i.e. PRESS CLUB OF INDIA, has turned into an AADA of vote-bank politics…!!

The present Secretary-General Nadem Kazmi is the biggest promoter of vote-bank politics in Press Club. While genuine journalists, working in leading English, Hindi dailies/TV channels or journals, are denied membership, those so-called fake journalists who are self-appointed EDITORS of non-published newspapers/journals/magazines, with all kinds of weird names and not even registered with the RNI, are conveniently awarded Press Club of India membership just for the sake of Vote-Bank..!!

THIS YEAR, SECRETARY-GENERAL NADEEM KAZMI DIDN’T EVEN DISPLAY THE LIST OF NEW MEMBERS. THIS IS SHAMEFUL ON HIS PART AND SHOULD BE CONDEMNED BY ONE AND ALL.

According to insiders, over 200 new members have been admitted to the Press Club of India this year alone FROM THE BACK DOOR, i.e. their identity has not been disclosed to anyone. Else, objections would have been raised against such memberships and Nadeem Kazmi would not have ensured his vote-bank.

Besides, Nadeem Kazmi has always indulged in vendetta politics against his adversaries, and has gone to the extent of submitting fake and forged documents before different courts of law against those who raised their voice against his malpractices and deeds of fraud and forgery. Thus, bringing a bad name to our Press Club of India.

OCTOBER 1, 2016, IS A PERFECT OPPORTUNITY BEFORE US ALL TO THROW SUCH MISCREANTS OUT OF POWER, AND OUT OF THE CLUB TOO. 

COME, VOTE FOR CHANGE THIS TIME.

Thanks
