A major rift has emerged in the Fiji Taxi Association after a commotion at the AGM in Nadi on Sunday.
General Secretary Rishi Ram had told Fijivillage on Sunday that some suspended members and others who have not paid their subscriptions turned up at the AGM and wanted to vote during the election.
Harish Chandra of Regent Taxis Limited has released a press release on behalf of the Fiji Taxi Association saying he was unanimously appointed as the Interim President after the commotion on Sunday and he now has the responsibility to call the AGM in a months' time.
Chandra is also claiming that the siting executives of the Association were trying to block some members from voting as they did not have support of majority of the members.
He says the current executives do not want to lose their positions and are making all sorts of excuses.
Meanwhile, Ram says Chandra has no right to run the affairs of the association.
Ram has also told us that he will not contest for the position of the General Secretary but has not ruled out the possibility of contesting for another position.
