INDIA: Amul chair Chaudhary removed from post
Amul chairman Chaudhary sacked due to irregularities in running the board just-food was told
The chairman of India's Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation, the company behind the Amul brand, has been removed from his post it has been confirmed.
The organisation, which manages Indian milk brand Amul, cited "irregularities of running the board" as one of the reasons for the sacking of Vipul Chaudhary.
"On 11 January, Mr Chaudhary was informed that he ceased to be the chairman of GCMMF," a source close to the federation told just-food.
In a no-confidence motion moved against his chairmanship last December, the overwhelming majority of members of GCMMF voted against him. The source said: "The members had serious complaints against Mr Chaudhary relating to irregularities in the running of the board." The source did not specify the nature of the alleged irregularities.
Chaudhary challenged the no-confidence motion in the Gujarat High Court, which rejected his plea on 6 January. GCMMF went ahead with its decision to remove him from his position. Elections to appoint a successor are to be held.
Chaudhary still holds the chairmanship of the Dudhsagar Dairy of the Mehsana District Cooperative Milk Producers' Union, which is a member union of GCMMF and supplies milk to Amul.
Chaudhary told the Press Trust of India news agency that divisiveness will not help GCMMF. The GCMMF source said that the affair would not affect Amul’s operations
