On behalf of the EC, I would wait for at least three senior members
(respectable to me) of this list to opine here if this mail qualifies for
a reply here in this exact forum or not. Until then, kindly avoid believing
in the contorted interpretations expressed in the same.

> 3. An EC meeting was held on 31st August. Certain resolutions were passed

> However a non EC member, Nikita, who ceased to be an EC member as of 1st

> 4. I resigned on the 3rd of September, making it the loss of EC member
