Meanwhile, Mukesh Bohra took oath of office as new chairman of Nainital Dugdh Samiti on Monday, one of the largest milk societies in the state.

HC rejected a special appeal filed by Bharat Negi, a delegate of the primary society, challenging the election process. As per Uttarakhand Cooperative Societies (Amendment) Rules, now only chairpersons of primary societies can cast the vote to elect Central Milk Society.

Notably, HC dismissed a similar petition filed by another delegate of the primary society, Sanjay Singh Rana, challenging the elections process last Wednesday.

Earlier, the governing body of Central Milk Society was elected by delegates of all 385 primary milk societies across the state.

Most of these primary milk societies operated in remote rural areas with very few members and their representation at the time of Central Milk Society elections was nominal.
