Setting into motion the reconstitution of the political structure, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday announced its eight-member ad hoc political affairs committee (PAC) for Punjab.
The eight members of the committee will be former leader of opposition and Bholath MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira, Kharar MLA Kanwar Sandhu, Mansa MLA Nazar Singh Mansahia, Maur MLA Jagdev Singh Kamalu, Jaiton MLA Baldev Singh, Bhadaur MLA Pirmal Singh Khalsa, Raikot MLA Jagtar Singh Jagga Hissowal and Garhshankar MLA Jai Krishan Rori. Mansahia will be the member secretary of the ad hoc committee.
Announcing this in Chandigarh, Kharar MLA Kanwar Sandhu said the ad hoc PAC will also have a total of eight special invitees. They are Gurpartap Singh Khushalpur (Gurdaspur),Daljit Singh Sadarpura (Dharamkot), NS Chahal, advocate (Moga),Deepak Bansal (Bathinda), Paramjit Singh Sachdeva (Hoshiarpur), Pargat Singh Chaugawan (Amritsar, rural), Suresh Sharma (Amritsar,urban) and Karamjit Kaur (Mansa).
All the members and special invitees of Ad-hoc PAC will also be members of the proposed ad-hoc state executive committee and this will be announced soon.
The ad-hoc state PAC will monitor and supervise the reconstitution of the entire political structure of the state including the appointment of the state president/convenor. It will also set up the party structure at the district, Vidhan Sabha constituency and block levels.
It will also supervise the district level party volunteer meetings to infuse new spirit in the party and strengthen the state unit.
“Once the state political structure is in place, the ad hoc PAC and Ad-hoc state executive will stand dissolved. A new state executive and state PAC would be constituted,” Sandhu added.
This is the first step towards reconstitution of the structure of AAP in Punjab after the AAP volunteers convention at Bathinda.
Six resolutions were passed at the Bathinda convention, including declaration of autonomy for the Punjab unit. The Convention had also scrapped the existing structure of party in the state and announced that the process of forming the fresh structure would start soon.
“The whole process will be in line with the concept of Swaraj as envisaged by AAP national convenor Arvind Kejriwal,”Sandhu said.
