Rajesh Garg, Rakesh Vanwat, Manoj Vohra and Narendra Kumar Sogani were in fray for the post of vice-chairman. Rakesh Vanwat became the first vice-chairman by getting 7 votes but the result was a tie between Rajesh Garg and Manoj Bohra as they got 6-6 votes each. In such a situation, a decision was taken by taking out a slip. A little girl Anushka Palod took out the slip bearing Manoj Vohra’s name.
