Lat time kate replied that she has sent a mail to Sarath
Kummamuru<kcsarath at gmail.com> -
kcsarath at gmail.com <-kcsarath at gmail.com> and asked him to give the present
status (Before 2 years) and said that if there is no reply she will proceed
with the change of the leader.

The main issue is to moderate the local chapter. We are even ready to have a
new chapter (With new name) if the old chapter issue cannot
be resolved.Please suggest.

Thank you for the mail once again.

Regards,
Raj
