Ours is a Cooperative Housing Society located in K-East ward of Mumbai. One of our Managing Committee members boycotted ten consecutive meetings.
He then started attending the subsequent meetings, stating that his absence from the meetings cannot be termed illegal. He argues that boycotting meeting was his right. Please advise us whether his contention is right?
