Was Dushyant Dave ever NOT SCBA president? General body to decide in 10 days

Schroedinger’s president: Both exists and doesn’t exist at the same time
Schroedinger’s president: Both exists and doesn’t exist at the same time

If the official minutes of the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) Executive Committee (EC) meeting held on 18 March are any indication, its president, Dushyant Dave, who presided over that meeting, never ceased to be its president, despite his resignation earlier on 15 February.

Although on 17 March Dave had formally withdrawn his resignation, the minutes suggest that as he had addressed his resignation letter also to the general body (GB), and as the general body did not accept it, he continued to be the president all these days.

Therefore, it appears there was no vacuum as such.

According to the minutes, first, eight members of the EC met and considered Dave’s letter withdrawing his resignation. Thereafter, Dave entered and chaired the meeting.

The minutes suggest that the minutes register of the EC was kept under lock and key by the secretary. Therefore, signatures could not be obtained on the register.

The uploaded minutes show that under Dave’s chairmanship, the EC had resolved to call the general body meeting, on the basis of two requisitions, to discuss the course of functioning of the EC

The GB meeting has been scheduled for 4.10 p.m. on 31 March at Plaza Canteen, Supreme Court compound.

Given the recent controversy over Dave’s withdrawal of his resignation letter, and his differences with the secretary, Gaurav Bhatia, the GB meeting is likely to be stormy.

Interestingly, the minutes have been uploaded under the Secretary Desk, and it appears to be a notice issued by the secretary himself (see below).
