The person was not a member at the time, which is a point of contention and
which would remain. Even the ratification of renewal of membership and
validity of being member of EC with retrospective effect, at this time
still would have its own share of questions to be answered satisfactorily.
That said, I am a common wikimedia member and do not really care what
happens with the EC or anything around this discussions. I do what I can
and would continue doing that.
To be honest, I used to watch what was happening and the different
conversations that has been going around this entire fiasco. It have
succeeded in alienating a lot of people, so fed-up of all the happenings. I
have never seen anyone responsible or answerable, responding to the
multiple queries which have been going around then, now or expect that to
happen in future as well.
The explanation or discussion is not supposed to happen between us at all
at first place.
I have never got out of work or stopped doing what I can to support the
movement and hence there is no question of getting back to work. Please
request you to not order me around. You may want to do what you have to do.

And with all respect to Vincent Vikram, the logic
what you are saying
would also mean that Ms. Jayalalithaa can continue as Tamil Nadu CM
irrespective of her ceasing to be an MLA....!!!
Please give the complete example if you are trying to use an analogy. She
was disqualified and lost CM post due to the conviction and not because she
simply ceased to be an MLA. I believe that an MLC can also be CM, K
Rosaiah the present CM of Andhra Pradesh being an MLC.They should only
enjoy the support of the majority.
My understanding uses the following examples:
First, holding the post of PM of India
" be a member of the Lok Sabha <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lok_Sabha>
or the Rajya Sabha <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rajya_Sabha>. If the
person chosen as the prime minister is neither a member of the Lok Sabha
nor the Rajya Sabha at the time of selection, he must become a member of
either of the houses within six months."
Second, our current MHRD, Ms Smriti Irani lost the MP elections from Amethi,
was still appointed to the post.
So yes, the logic is simple. The EC member held the primary membership and
this lapsed due to some reason. And the membership was then renewed. I
believe that the EC can take a decision to ratify the membership and amend
the rules as well.
Hope this solves the dilemma. Now can we get back to work?
