80% cast vote in CR employees body polls
NAGPUR: Barring a stray incident of skirmish, 80% polling was recorded in the keenly-contested elections for the Central Railway Employees Credit
Cooperative Society in Nagpur division.
The Ajni loco shed, where Pradeep Aage, senior technician, was injured in clash between activists of Rail Kamgar Sena (RKS) and National Railway Mazdoor Union (NRMU), recorded highest polling of 89.33%. Wardha recorded lowest with 36.25%.
According to RKS, Aage was attacked by one Ravi and Rajendra Selukar, both affiliated to NRMU, when he was having tea outside the loco shed. They said Aage sustained head injuries following stone pelting and has been admitted to Government Medical College & Hospital (GMCH). A police complaint was lodged against the duo. The NRMU Ajni loco shed chief also lodged a counter complaint against the RKS activist.
CR PRO Suhas Lohkare informed that out of 15,391 members in the entire division, 10,556 cast their votes in 7 constituencies and 20 booths set up by the personnel department. Barring the Ajni incident, which he said took place outside the loco shed, polling went off peacefully. DRM A K Kapoor himself monitored the situation to ensure smooth polling, he added.
Both, the NRMU and the RKS-CRMS claimed their panels would sweep the polls. However, results would be known on June 19, when counting of votes will be taken up. The elections were held to choose 25 delegates from the division. Of these, 12 will be from Nagpur, Ballarshah (4), Amla (3), Wardha (2), Ghodadongri (2), and Pulgaon & Junnardeo 1 each.
The polls were keenly fought as high stakes are involved with the society having a combined turnover of over Rs 800 crore in nine divisions viz. Nagpur, Pune, Solapur, Bhusawal and Mumbai and Bhopal, Agra, Jhansi and Jabalpur. The tenure of the delegates will be for six years. Set up in 1913, the 95-year-old society is claimed to be one of the leading credit societies in Asia.
