Direct political affiliation of Prabir with CPIM can lead to the
labeling of FOSSCOMM.
It is better that some one who is not directly involved in politics
represent Indian free sotware community.

It is better to layout the working principles of FOSSCOMM before these kinds
of representations are made in the name of FOSSCOMM/Indian free
software community.
This hurry can be destructive.
