The rules of the club say that the Gurgaon Divisional Commissioner is its ex-officio president, the authority to appoint any other person to the post lies with the board of patrons. The board includes Directorate of Town and Country Planning's (DTCP) commissioner and secretary, HUDA's chief administrator and president of the club as its members with a representative from the Haryana Government as its chairman.
A source quoted by TOI said that Nagal was "relieved late on Wednesday night after he expressed his desire to quit the post". Meanwhile, there's a state of ambivalence as to who will take over the post of vice-president after Meena replaces Nagal.
When contacted, Nagal said to TOI "In most districts, the local HUDA administrator is president of Gymkhana Club. Therefore, the same system should be followed across the state. Also, the HUDA administrator is in touch with local officials. He is likely to address their issues soon."
"After a series of protests and meetings, we were able to convince Nagal about our complaints. There are irregularities in tenders. The swimming pool and gym have been outsourced. Members are being made to pay more. Outsiders are being allowed entry against the rules. We doubt if old promises will be kept," said one of the veteran members of the club who is also leading the protest and the legal battle.
On being asked what they would do if issues are not resolved, he said, "We have gone to court in the past. And if our issues are not addressed, we will file a petition to the Lokayukta and Registrar (Societies) offices."
