Credit society election fever grips CR staff

NAGPUR: With two days to go for the polls to the Central Railway Employees Credit Cooperative Society, election fever has gripped the division

with poster war and campaigning reaching a crescendo. Across entire Central Railway, including some divisions now gone into other zonal railways, some 1.5 lakh employees will be casting their votes on June 18.

The society has mammoth turnover of Rs 800 crore in all nine divisions. In Nagpur division, 13,000 of the 16,000 employees are shareholders and eligible to vote. They will elect 25 members on the executive. Of these, 12 will be from Nagpur, four from Ballarshah, three from Amla, two each from Wardha and Ghodadongri, and one each from Pulgaon and Junnardeo.

The polls are simultaneously held every six years in the zone comprising Nagpur, Pune, Solapur, Bhusawal and Mumbai divisions and also newly carved divisions of Bhopal, Agra, Jhansi and Jabalpur. In all 298 members will be elected. For the first time, Congress faction has joined hands with Shiv Sena at the zonal level. In Nagpur division, four panels are contesting but the real fight is between National Railway Mazdoor Union (NRMU) and Central Railway Mazdoor Sangh (CRMS) allying with Rail Kamgar Sena (RKS). The two other organisations in fray include SC/ST Association and Madhya Railway Karmachari Sangh (MRKS) joining hands with some small groups.

Set up in 1913, the ECCS is part of the Indian Railways welfare measure for employees. It provides soft loans to the employees and also acts as a bank. Last year, CRMS had swept the society polls in Nagpur. However, this time there is a tough fight and both unions are confident of victory.

Divisional president of RKS Manoj Samarth said, "We are banking on the good work like lower interest rates and proposed expansion of the society branches. The Sena is contesting six seats while CRMS is contesting 19. In the polls held last year to get recognition, RKS had got 19,000 votes and CRMS 36,000 votes at the zonal level. If these votes are combined, we may win society polls comfortably. The alliance is getting good response during campaigning."

Last time, the CRMS had fought jointly with the SC/ST Association and had won 88 seats in the zone. Yet, NRMU had a majority at the zonal level. The NRMU is also leaving no stone unturned to secure a win. Its members were seen campaigning intensively going door to door and establishing personal contacts. A CRMS gate meeting was organised at DRM office on Monday.

Meanwhile, the personnel department has made all arrangements for the elections by setting up 20 booths in the entire division. In Nagpur and Ajni stations there will four and two polling booths respectively. Counting will be on June 19, sources informed.
