MV I Ext: East End Apartments votes for camp BK Singh
Residents of East End Apartments in Mayur Vihar Phase I Extension have, once again, shown their faith in the leadership of BK Singh and re-elected him as the president of the managing committee for the next three years. JP Verma has been elected as the vice-president.
In elections held yesterday, Singh defeated his opponent KG Verma with a margin of 11 votes. Of the 523 residents who cast their votes, 264 voted for Singh, while 253 supported Verma. The remaining three did not vote for the post of president.
JP Verma secured 268 votes in his favour against his opponent Anjum Razi Khan, who managed 253 votes.
For the two seats reserved for women members in the committee, it was victory again for Singh’s team. Shashi Bansal and Talat Parveen secured a post in the committee, defeating Sheela Gupta and Sunita Pradhan.
After the results came out, Singh said, “It feels really good that the residents have again reposed their faith in us. We’ll have to work even harder to fulfil the commitments we have made. Our first target is to finish the work of upgrading the lifts. The first phase will be completed by March, and then we will plan for the second phase.”
The opposition could manage to win only two seats in the managing committee. Of the seven members elected, five — S Sivaraman (294), MK Gupta (257), K Pasupathi (269), Aparesh Mukhopadhyay (258) and Kailash Vadehra (259) — are from BK Singh’s camp. Only AK Aggarwal (250) and Subhash Chandra Srivastava (263) belong to the opposition group.
JP Verma, who was elected as the vice-president, said, “It was a close fight, and anti-incumbency played its part to some extent. But ultimately, we won with a majority. I can promise that we’ll continue to work with the same spirit we have in the past three years. There are many issues that need to be addressed, but my first target would be lifts in the C Block.”
