Extra Note: Couple of candidates including K.M.Aziz and Manzar Nadim has complained of threat over telephone. We need to remember that this service of Trustee is a voluntary one. Act of threat from fellow family member is to be condemned.
Songshod- the unofficial organization of the youth had so far played important role in selecting and promoting good candidates up until the current election. Couple of beneficiaries complained that Songshod dashed their hope for the first time. Songshod has compromised its integrity by nominating one or two controversial candidates.
Let us pray the election is conducted in a peaceful environment. Honest and competent members are elected to meet beneficiary’s aspiration and safeguard the family property.
