I am confused by your mail.
Not able to understand whether
a. you are trying to defend (/give their perspective of) EC or you are
b. talking about current office bearers and/or talking about previous
office bearers who left abruptly.
c. What is the paid employees role? Even when he is in Banglore, why things
are not happening in time.
d. why your mails get blocked?
many more things if I translate the read-between-the-lines.
