Press Club of India elections: TR Ramachandran is President; Sandeep Dikshit is Secy General

TR Ramachandran of G Files has been elected as the new President of Press Club of India (PCI) for the year 2010-11 in the elections held on November 13, 2010, for which the results were declared on the evening of November 24, 2010. Sandeep Dikshit of The Hindu has been elected as Secretary General.

Ramachandran polled 692 votes, defeating his rival Parvez Ahmed, the incumbent president who got 444 votes. Dikshit defeated Pushpendra Kulshreshtha, who has been occupying the post of the Secretary General for a record four time. Dikshit polled 626 votes as against 520 votes secured by Kulshreshtha.

Anil Anand and Vineeta Pandey of DNA have been elected as Vice-Presidents, while Nadeem Ahmad Kazmi of NDTV is the new Treasurer of the Club.

The elected members of the executive committee include Aarti Dhar, Aditi Nigam, Anoop Saxena, Avtar Negi, Dinesh K Tewari, Jagdish Yadav, Jomy Thomas, MK Tayal, Narendra Bhalla, Nitin A Gokhale, Rajeev Ranjan, Sanjay Singh, Sanjeev Upadhyay, Shambhu Nath Choudhary, Sumit Mishra, and Vijay Saluja.

This year’s elections at the PCI assume significance as these were held under the supervision of a Court observer. Delhi High Court had appointed an observer to hold the elections after a suit filed by three members of the Press Club alleging that a number of persons were given membership of the Club in violation of the laid down procedures and that their names had figured in the voters’ list. The results were declared in the presence of the Court observer.

Other major highlights of this year’s elections were that these were fought on the main plank of journalists versus non-journalists, there were one on one fights for the top posts and the previous team was totally routed.
