Can you see something wrong in this poster?
It seems to convey that Prime Minister of Australia Mr. Malcolm Turnbull and Prime Minister of India Mr. Narendra Modi are attending this event. It seems that United India Associations (UIA) has become shorn of ideas to capture crowd for their event after the debacle of their last 5 fairs, which were attended by less than 500 people.
Nobody puts the pictures of such high profile leaders, without their official approval and confirmation of their attendance. The IST is aware that neither of them is attending this event. If UIA has their approval, they should share it with the community.
The IST understands that some key leaders inside UIA have taken a dim view of, and are deeply concerned about, this behaviour from Sreeni Pillamarri-led team.
The IST is also aware of the serious concern within the Indian Australian community, because such behaviour is likely to project the community and community associations in poor light. It is paramount that such behaviours are challenged to prevent the community from becoming a laughing stock.
