Several members of the Working Committee send a letter to the Resident Assembly to address a breach of trust that has happened between the seven members of the WC:
“On the morning of 18th January 2022, at 10:30 (we had been told earlier that we would have to meet the Collector at 11), a mail was sent by Anu which, in addition to their statement, had a PowerPoint presentation to be presented by the four of them about Governance of Auroville, Selection of working group members and other general Auroville topics, as well as proposed action points as follow up to the last Governing Board meeting. The 3 of us had not been invited to be part of the preparation.
We were shocked at this exclusion of us as three selected members of the Working Committee of the Residents’ Assembly.
We feel that this action from the other four members was a serious breach of trust and makes our work more challenging than ever.”
