Bombay Parsi Punchayet (BPP) chairman Yazdi Desai attempts to avoid conflict of interest over wife's candidature for trusteeship; favors court appointed observers for forthcoming elections



Dear Co-Trustees,

I would like to put on record that since my wife Anahita Desai is standing for the forthcoming Elections, in the spirit of good governance and fair play, I will recuse myself from discussions and decisions regarding the procedure and logistics of the forthcoming Elections.

I also want to record that I am very much for approaching the High Court for Appointing Observers / Commissioners for the Elections as was done in the last Elections of 2016.

Also it needs to be recorded that at the 2015 Elections when Trustee Viraf Mehta was contesting, his father Dinshaw Mehta who was the Chairman at that time did not recuse himself from the Election procedure and in fact was misusing his authority and position.

Kind regards,

Yazdi.
