Sushil Gupta resigns as RI president-nominee
Sushil Kumar Gupta Resigns
My Fellow Rotarians,
It is with a heavy heart that I announce my resignation as the president-nominee
of Rotary International. While it was my dream to serve as your
president, my health prevents me from giving my absolute best to
you and the office of the president at this time. I believe Rotary
deserves nothing less than that from those elected to represent
this great organization of ours.
I have made this difficult decision after much soul searching and
conferring with my family. This is not only a disappointment for
us, but I am also keenly aware that this will be a disappointment
for many Rotarians in India who were so proud to see someone from
our country again named as president. I know that this is what is
best for Rotary International.
I have been a Rotarian for more than 40 years and it has given me
everything I could ask for. I can think of no higher honor than
to have been selected by the Nominating Committee as president of
Rotary for the 2020-21 Rotary year. I will continue to proudly serve
as a Rotary member and pursue some major initiatives that I wanted
to accomplish during my year as president, because I know that we
are poised to achieve more great things in the future.
I wish nothing but the best to the candidate who succeeds me as
president and thank you all for the support and encouragement you
have shown me in the past year.
