Indore: Yeshwant Club- the 68 years old royal recreational place in Indore—is in the eye of a controversy following a high court order that reinstated membership of its ousted treasurer Sunil Bajaj. The row has foreshadowed the forthcoming election to the club’s new office bearers slated in June this year.
The Yeshwant Club with a legacy of 74 years and a membership of 3000 is a great life style destination of Central India.
Traditionally, lobbying and canvassing for aspiring candidates would start months ahead of the election in the past. By April, the canvassing would be at peak.
But this year the club is embroiled in the battle Royale between Sunil Bajaj and Paramjit Chhabra, the chairman of the managing committee.
On Tuesday last, the club’s legal committee decided to reinstate Bajaj’s membership, honouring the court’s order. But the move was only technical.
The committee betrayed its unwillingness to take back Bajaj by appointing Ajay Bagadia as its lawyer to put up the club’s side vis-a-vis Bajaj’s petition in the court over the membership issue.
Managing committee chairman Chhabra only complicated the matter by saying Bajaj can not be reinstated as treasurer unless he gets a clear order from the high court to this effect.
“No where in the court order is mentioned that Bajaj be reinstated as treasurer,” Chhabra averred.
