The man who ousted Verghese Kurian and B M Vyas from the helm of GCMMF in the past finally paved way for Shankarbhai Chaudhary as the Chairman of Banas dairy. Parthy Bhai Bhatol was ousted from the largest dairy of Asia and one of the milk unions of Amul after a gap of 24 years.
Minister of State, Department of Health, Government of Gujarat and BJP MLA Shri Shankarbhai Chaudhary has been elected unopposed as Chairman of Banas dairy. Mavjibhai Desai has been elected Vice Chairman unopposed.
Shri Chaudhary thanked board of directors and milk producers for his unopposed election. Election for the posts of Chairman and Vice Chairman was held today after recently concluded elections that Shankarbhai Chaudhary led panel won with 2/3rd majority, reports Indian Express.
Chaudhary led panel won 8 seats while rival Bhatol who controls Banas dairy for last 24 years saw victory of his only 3 candidate. Polling was to be held for 14 seats.
Bhatol – a cooperator with BJP background has been successful in past elections but luck was not on his side this time. After exiting as Chairman of GCMMF in past Bhatol concentrated on Banas which has been his stronghold for past 24 years.
Banas Dairy was established by Galbabhai Nanjibhai Chaudhary who through his hard work continued the functioning of dairy even during the time of severe water scarcity in north Gujarat. The dairy now involves Rs 5,000 crore management.
