Lack of democracy in cooperatives
Govt appears to have developed vested interest in superseding elected boards

‘Cooperative Week’ celebrations in J&K appear to be more of ritualistic observance of a movement which has seen many ups and downs around the world but it has been a sad story in the state so far as the cooperative institutions are concerned. In fact, the cooperative movement which started and ran successfully in the state in the initial saw its downturn with the induction of politicians of varied hue at the helm of affairs. Unfortunately, these institutions became bankrupt once the loot by the politicians started and their capital, which was the contribution of the citizens in the interest of the cooperative institution, shrank to such an extent that they became unviable. Induction of politicians and their installations at the prime posts by the successive governments was mainly responsible for the degeneration in the working of these institutions that led to acute corruption and nepotism with no accountability to the share-holders. Later on, when their elected boards were superseded and hand-picked people appointed as heads of the cooperative institutions elections were discarded in favour of continuance of this arrangements as a result of which people lost faith in their working. There are still cooperative bodies where no elections have been held since their inception whether the government had a majority in stake in them or not. The history is being repeated in cooperative institutions now-a-days also. Instead of holding fresh elections in these institutions, the present government has also opted in favour of superseding their elected boards and the minister incharge is becoming chairperson of all of them. It has only added to disenchantment and anger among the share-holders against the government. Not only this, officials who have been favouring elections have also been eased out of these institutions for towing the whims and fancies of the ministers concerned.
