Aaron denies split rumours

On the eve of the USACA elections, the dirty-tricks brigade are at it

On the eve of the USACA elections, the dirty-tricks brigade are at it. On the USACA’s new bulletin board, claims are being made that John Aaron, a candidate for the role of secretary, has deserted the Ram Varadarajan team and linked up with Kamran Khan.

Aaron himself was quick to scotch the suggestions. "I am sorry to disappoint those who would like to think that there is a split in the New Inning team, and at the same time I appreciate the flattering rumors allegedly made by at least two other independent candidates, that I have now hitched my wagon to their cause and candidacies,” he said. “For the record, my candidacy for Secretary of USACA and my decision to be associated with the New Inning team remains intact. I am not now, nor have I ever been a part of any other presumed slate, nor have I teamed up with any other candidate, as a means of being elected.”
