Two BPP trustees to move court tomorrow

The two minority Bombay Parsi Punchayet (BPP) trustees are expected to file a petition in the Bombay High Court tomorrow asking that trusteeship elections be held as per the BPP election scheme and the earlier directions of the Court. Trustees Noshir Dadrawala and Kersi Randeria disclosed this to Parsiana an hour before five trustees' weekly board meeting today. This is the second day of their indefinite fast at the BPP office pressing for elections to be held before the October 2022 date voted on by two trustees, chairwoman Armaity Tirandaz and Viraf Mehta last Tuesday, with Tirandaz exercising her casting vote.
Both fasting trustees said they were coping well but Dadrawala admitted to feeling a little weak.
In a WhatsApp message today Tirandaz and Mehta stated, "We have always been willing to sit across the table and discuss the concerns raised by Noshir, in a democratic and legal manner. However, to use threats and blackmail for political mileage is something the community cannot bow down to."
Meanwhile an online signature campaign to support Dadrawala and Randeria has drawn 1,700 signatures while 260 people have signed a register placed in the foyer of the office supporting the two.
