Displaying true honour in defeat, Sarathkumar, the outgoing president of Nadigar Sangam, has congratulated the team members of Vishal for emerging victorious in the elections held yesterday (18th October). “We concede our defeat and we wish good luck to the new team,” Sarathkumar has said.
Elections took place yesterday and soon after the conclusion of the polling at 05:00 p.m., counting of votes was taken up at 06:00 p.m. Though Sarathkumar led during the first round of counting of postal votes, the situation changed drastically as more and more votes were counted and finally, he lost to Nasser of Vishal’s ‘Pandavar Team’. All other office-bearers of the incumbent team lost the elections to Vishal’s team members.
Speaking to newsmen after the results were announced, Sarathkumar said “I’m very happy that Nassar has won. I congratulate him on his success.
Let’s all forget the bad blood which prevailed among the two teams before the elections and work united for the Nadigar Sangam’s progress. I shall still explain the need for executing agreement to construct Sangam’s premises. I don’t consider it as my team’s defeat but as the other team’s success. I shall continue to cooperate with the new team!”
Radha Ravi, who lost the general secretary’s post to his bête noire Vishal, congratulated the latter saying that Vishal has reaped the benefit for the extreme hard-work put in by him for the campaign. “I concede our team’s defeat and congratulate the winning team’s members for their future good!” Radha Ravi said.
