Support Letters from Charter Members to Amarnath Gowda

1 ) We want to thank Amarnath Gowda for clarifying the issues (in his recent email) especially the fact that "The bylaw committee has voted to include all the Kannada Kutas in the Board of AKKA and the amendment will be sent to the general membership for their ratification shortly".
We are fully in support of the original AKKA and do not support any break up of it.
Thanks for all the hard work people have put in.

2 ) We support the present AKKA under the presidency of Mr.Amarnath Gowda.Michigan Pampa Kannada Koota being the first kannada koota,we do not accept the unautherized elections that has taken place by some AKKA members.

Seeds For Thought- ( The new AKKA - Please Think)

4 ) The Kannada Sangha of Arizona,s Board of directors have voted to stay with the original AKKA organisation which was formed in AZ.We do not support the new group who are trying to branch off claiming to be the current AKKA office bearers as we did not support this move even from day 1.
We hope this whole thing could be resolved with the original group willing to incorporate all the Presidents and or it,s designate as they can follw it through due process.
With only 9 members approving the election out of all the states in the US is questionable in it,s authencity

7 ) Dear Presidents of Kannada Kutas and Directors of AKKA,
I discussed with the members of our Executive Committee regarding the unauthorized elections that has taken place by some AKKA members. Kannada Kuta, Vidyaranya Chapter, Illinois being one of the oldest and largest Kannada Kutas in the U.S.A. would like to say that we do not support the new "elections" that has taken place. We will stay with the originally formed AKKA during Arizona Sammelana, which is currently under the presidency of Mr. Amarnath Gowda.
Sincerely,
- Vasanthi Gowda

10) Dear AKKA Friends:

as for as I am concerned there is only one AKKA. I have stated many a times that changes cannot come externally. It is good to be inclusive of other peoples views even if they are in the minority. Since you strongly feel you need the endorsment, I am with the AKKA with whom I worked for two years as vice-president and initiated the changes that are vital to the growth of AKKA.

I appreciate the confidence and support that many of you have shown throughout my service in AKKA.

I will be leaving for Karnataka, India in a couple of hours and returning in first week of July.

If I can be of any help in unifying Kannadigas under one organization please let me know.

11) Namaskara

We are in complete agreement with the majority of kannada associations about AKKA continuing under Mr.Amarnath gowda. This is the time to be more united and cohesive and not the time to be splitting in to several factions.We do not support the new group . The Ramappas have taken a task to make Florida Conference an unprecedented one and their enthusiasm is unmeasurable. This is the right time to focus and work togther to make that a huge success as opposed to confuse and split the kannadigas. We hope to be a major part living in the south to make the 2004 conf a great sucess.

Shekar Sastry

President

Nashville Kannada koota
