The President and the Executive Committee thank the members for their over whelming attendance at the AGM and for the whole hearted and unconditional support extended towards the Executive Committee.
In an unprecedented show of strength and unity, the members, as always, raised to the occasion and have made it very clear that any further unilateral decisions by the management will not be tolerated.
