Here few points I want to make about few people:
- Glad to have the well deserved candidate N C Hegde in council. Despite getting lots of first preference votes, he couldn't make it last time. Very happy and glad to see him in Central Council and my heartiest congratulations!!
- Shrinivas Joshi was the only sitting central council member who lost the election. He is an excellent person and a sincere contributor. Hard luck for him. But let's recognize his contribution to the profession .
- Prafulla Chhajed has proved again a man of masses and mufasil. He started from 12th place with 1665 votes and he has doubled his votes from second and subsequent preferences. And that from everywhere. And that proves his reach accross the region. Many congratulations to Prafulla. I worked with him as vice chairman when he was a chairman of WIRC.
