JAMMU, June 21: The Jammu Chamber of Commerce and Industries (JCCI) president, Rakesh Gupta has claimed that there was no room for indiscipline in the Chamber and those raising `baseless allegations’ against the present team, would face action.
In a Press statement here today, Gupta referred to the news reports appearing in some local dailies made by an organisation ” Save Jammu Chamber Forum” with regard to some allegations against office bearers of JCCI. He said JCCI would like to project the facts so that these few persons stand exposed. He said there is no room for indiscipline in the JCCI and these few `rumour mongers’ shall face stern action.
He alleged that YV Sharma who has political affiliation to the Congress, Arun Gupta, both ex- officer bearers have lost all credibility by holding anti- chamber meeting and will be dealt with as per the constitution of the Chamber. The actual position is that a special general meeting was convened on December 19 , 2018 as per the provisions in the constitution of the Chamber which was attended by 751 members. Some historic amendments were approved by the House and also the term of the present team was extended by 2 more years as demanded by a majority in the House to complete the proposed Business Club. Later, all the amendments were notified to all the members through an advertisement in print media in March, 2019 and not even a single objection has been received by the Chamber office till date. He said that YV Sharma was personally invited by him to the said SGM but he never turned up in the meeting although Arun Gupta did attend the meeting.
He said a Business Club of the JCCI was the need of the hour so that the members could enjoy at a respectable place the luxurious facilities along with their families at affordable cost. He said an amount of Rs 6 crore has been generated for the proposed Club. He alleged that during the tenure of YV Sharma JCCI saw no development.
