Akhil Bharatiya Marathi Chitrapat Mahamandal vice president Dhanaji Yamkar recently locked its Kolhapur office in disgust. He alleged that president Meghraj Rajebhosle and secretary Sushant Shelar had not conducted a single meeting of the executive committee since March 2020 and had been taking unilateral decisions without consulting anyone else.
The term of the Mahamandal’s office-bearers has long expired but till elections can be held, the existing executive committee has been given charge of the Mahamandal.
According to Yamkar, the Kolhapur office will be opened only after the president visits it and addresses the problems of the Mahamandal members. The Association has a membership of around 55,000 members.
