The root cause of many of the problems is the lack of transparency. I have
talked about it at length in the past.

-

Until we received a letter from our national leader, alleging Radha Burnier
as sick, both physically and mentally, we did not even know who the
candidates were. One wonders if the GC members were sworn to secrecy about
disclosure of the election candidates. The letter we received from our
national leader started the health issue and discussions here rolling and
next we saw the physicianâs reports rebutting the allegation and the common
man and woman would any day will rely more on the professional opinions than
that of lay menâs and womenâs and that is what many of us did. All the three
physicians are highly reputed ones and hence there was no reason to doubt
their opinions.

-

Everyone on this list know about the details of disenfranchisement move and
they can make up their own mind. But the bottom line is that many members
have a very low trust in the leaders and it is going to take a lot of time
for the trust to be rebuilt. Until that is done, it is going to be difficult
to lead. And in the meanwhile, with background of what the leaders tried to
do and how the attempted it, makes many very vigilant because of the
continued lack of transparency. Just think of what would have been the
situation today but for the Internet and theos-talk.
