When the board of GCMMF wanted to remove Kurian way back in 2006, he was puzzled no end. He said that time that the board of directors opposing his chairmanship are the same people who had elected him unanimously, three months ago.
But then what happened in the intervening three months? Kurien who had wrestled with Indian bureaucracy and politicians all his life was not able to understand the new turn of events. But he was definitely smelling some grand design to upstage him? Who was it –an individual or a concentrated group of vested interest?
Kurian may have the answer but did not share. He only said , “I don’t know what consideration has prompted them (board directors) to adopt such a course of action. I could only think that the recent decision of board members is an orchestrated act involving people at a very high level.”
People at high level? Who is it? Today he must be laughing at the bank as the grand empire of white revolution which Kurien built is bleeding drop by drop. And that too before Kurien’s eyes! Unless the average cooperator wakes up and take note , his business,his movement and his legends like Kurien are going to vanish slowly, in course of times. The recent spat at Anand is just a curtain raiser!
