Congratulations continue to pour in for Dr Chandra Pal Singh Yadav who is likely to get elected to the Upper House of parliament after a couple of days. That Dr. Yadav will win the election is a foregone conclusion.
IFFCO Managing Director Dr U S Awasthi has tweeted congratulating the NCUI President on his soon to be elevation.
Dr. U S Awasthi (@drusawasthi) tweeted : Congratulations to # Chandra Pal Singh Yadav for winning election of #Rajya Sabha from @UP We are confident that he will work for coop welfare.”
Awasthi and Yadav are seen as two formidable cooperative personalities and a constructive relation between the two is sure to lead the Indian cooperative movement to greater heights, opine several cooperators Indian Cooperative talked to.
Strange though it may sound, the Samajwadi Party the leading political outfit of Uttar Pradesh is acting as a strong link between the two. Adiyta Yadav the scion of the ruling clan of UP is one of the Directors on the board of IFFCO and a favourite of Dr Awasthi who not only got him nominated to the ICA Board but also ensured his victory at the international forum.
As if replying to IFFCO MD’s expectations, Chandra Pal told this correspondent on phone earlier ”his elevation to the RS membership would benefit the entire cooperative sector hitherto ignored by the Central government.’
”I will raise matters concerning cooperatives in the House and fight for their due place in the Union Budget that has always mollycoddled the corporate sector at their expense, Chandra Pal told this correspondent.”
There are many congratulatory massages received at Indian cooperative desk. Prominent among those who have sent in their messages of congratulation are B K Mishra, Managing Director of Fishcopfed and Biscomaun Chairman Sunil Singh.
