इनेप्लिज २०७३ मंसिर ९ गते ३:४८ मा प्रकाशित


Dear All,

ANTA current committee is condemning the immature activities recently done by Chakradhar Mishra who falsely claimed to be representative of ANTA, sending out an undisciplined email about ANTA current president-Elect Suneel K Sah and blaming current ANTA current committee of transferring ANTA domain secretly and fraudulently. We would like to remind Chakradhar Mishra not to undermine ANTA values and not to involve in this kind of unlawful and cheap activities. We would also like to make it clear that an unauthorized use of ANTA logo, making a committee by gathering 5-10 people in a room, not daring to go in front of public, not participating in democratic election process, sending out false and misleading information and harassing others by email won’t make anybody ANTA’s representative.

One should not forget that current ANTA committee was elected by ANTA 4th General Convention which successfully happened on Sep 10, 2016 in Columbus, Ohio. The 4th General convention also formed a reconciliation ad-hoc committee, whose chairperson is Dr. Subodh Mallik, to bring the other party into agreement to continue to give one ANTA platform for ANTA Members and for the welfare of our society and our people in the USA, Nepal and around the world. We tried working with reconciliation committee in last two and a half months in a democratic way to bring them onboard with a mutual agreement but failed. The current ANTA Committee is working hard for Madhesi community, but some individuals are trying to hamper the works for their personal interest. The current ANTA committee is trying to bring all the Madhesis in same table to work together for our community, but some individuals are trying to create a rift between us.

Also, as we couldn’t come to a negotiation even with the involvement of the reconciliation committee ,we followed democratic process to gain control of our domain www.terai.org by using a process called ” change of registrants” using ID verification process that required us to submit  valid US identification of ANTA current President-Elect Suneel K Sah followed by US secretary of states approved documents for change of registered agent with Mr. Sah name on it. We didn’t do anything so called fraudulently and secretly to gain access to ANTA domain. During this process, about 10-20 emails have been sent to Kaushal Jha at [email protected] to release the ownership by Godaddy  LLC . We believe by failing to follow the democratic process to resolve the current dispute, other party has simply kept ANTA Proprietary asset hostage.  We ask other party to stop using sections of ANTA by laws against Mr. Suneel K Sah as it is available to us more than them with our democratic position. ANTA current committee will be compelled to take legal action to save this organization if they continue to use ANTA Proprietary asset.

Since the ANTA 4th General Convention, the current ANTA committee have started working on several projects such as providing free DV lottery service, providing free legal service for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Repatriation of dead body of Madhesi migrant workers etc. All of these projects are directly related to welfare of Madhesi people across the world. The works of ANTA current committee have been praised by several people in our community. ANTA current committee has also planned to launch more projects that will empower Madhesi abroad. As we have taken momentum for our work, some individuals are jealous and feared of current ANTA’s progress. We would like to make it clear that we are always open to do public discussion or table talk whatever is feasible so that all ANTA members have opportunity to work for our community and provide feedback. It would be fruitful to join us in our mission for empowering Madhesis than showing jealousness. We would also like to urge all the ANTA members to speak up against those individuals who are threatening our community harmony and organization by not accepting and respecting ANTA member’s decision who elected the current ANTA committee at ANTA 4th General Convention.

Please find the attached press release.

If you have any questions regarding this press release please contact ANTA’s Elect   President Suneel Sah via e-mail [email protected] or by phone (732) 662-8028.

Gen. Secretary-Elect, ANTA
