In last elections, there was a clear Anti-Sabbas Joseph team wave. Vijay Arora is a known player in the Sabbas team. The wave was for a change of a rampant management which was unleashed for 4 years in EEMA. This period saw not only serving of notices to its own members to supress freedom of speech but also saw termination of member without due process of justice and empowerment. It became a Khhap justice regime. Result of which was that many old members were not interested in paying fees and decided to leave EEMA. Hardly any new members were ready to join. Membership issue became so grave that to cover this disaster Sabbas and his team went to the extent of announcing free membership. Just to show as achievement and white wash the reality. But this effort also back fired as very few joined and then were not ready to renew fees and choose to move out.
New NEC took up this issue on top priority. Brand building exercise was taken on in a systematic manner, packages of members benefit were rolled out along with drastic reduction in entrance fees and annual fees. Secretariat team along with active VP’s transformed the entire negative image to a most inclusive environment image. Vipul Pandhi VP North played a key role in reviving old membership and ended up adding 87 new members which was unprecedented in past 10 years.
Culture in EEMA had turned into a cult and all around only few faces of Sabbas’s Team were projected which resulted in complete non-inclusive approach. All voting members are business owners with sharp minds. They kept aside personal relationships and gave priority to their own business and industry by giving decisive mandate and wiped out the entire Sabbas Team consisting of Siddarth Chaturvedi & Ankur Kalra who contested for the GS position, Meenu Varma (w/o Rajesh Varma) who stood for VP North position, Mandeep Malhotra as EVP, Amanveer for Secretary position, Vijay Arora as treasurer in the last elections. Entire team lost badly. Over confidence of depending just on relationship was shattered by members who decided enough is enough and send this Sabbas Team packing and elected some fresh faces which brought fresh air in EEMA. Few most active members in the new NEC transformed EEMA and delivered achievements which were unprecedented. Of these few performers, it is well known in EEMA that amongst all 4 zones, VP North - Vipul’s achievements on all fronts were outstanding and succeeded in activating North members with his positive and inclusive approach.
Once again, the time has come for the EEMA North Members to elect VP North. Two candidates are way apart personalities by way of intent, attitude, and arrogance and most important is clean image. Eventaa News has analysed both the candidates – Vipul Pandhi and Vijay Arora as this election is not limited to EEMA but impacts the entire industry.
Vijay Arora – EEMA, My Baby Culture
Vijay has been openly boasting about “My Baby, My Baby”. Even after passage of 12 years, he is not able to accept the fact that EEMA is of and for the members and EEMA and is member’s baby and not anyone’s personal ownership. This attitude of Vijay with active support of Sabbas, Rajeev and team has ended in huge controversies, allegations amounting to frauds and costing EEMA lacs of rupees. It is heard that his wrong doings have already been brought to the notice and actions are awaited.
Noteworthy acts of Vijay Arora are mainly:
There are end number of acts and actions of Vijay which clearly demonstrates that he has worked in EEMA for his personal growth first, for photo-op activities and EEMA interest came next. He and his EEMA leadership team has used, misused and abused power. While this article is being published, Eventaa News is in possession of campaign where lot many new faces have joined bandwagon of Vijay. Eventaa could not reach out to all these members of Vijay’s bandwagon and verify if they knew the above realities and are still supporting such Anti-EEMA actions or are ignorant and joined Vijay’s team in ignorance.
Contesting against the above ideology of Vijay is Vipul Pandhi. With age on his side and a fresh mind with no politics delivered beyond expectations of members who voted for him with his abundant energies. At this young age he had the vision of nurturing talent and ensured maximum tie-ups on education front. Under his young leadership MC fraternity was engaged and activated. He became a vital person in the NEC. Eventaa News has so far not come across any complain or allegations on Vipul in his record breaking 108 activities carried out in a short period of 2 years. He has always been seen and demonstrated that “EEMA is OUR Baby”. We all members are proud owners and not few individuals.
Time will tell when results are out if North Members will once again vote keeping relationship aside as they did in the last election or vote for “My Baby Culture”.
