The Hush Post: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday announced its eight-member ad hoc political affairs committee (PAC) for Punjab. It has been done to reconstitute the political structure of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

The eight members of the committee will be the former leader of opposition and Bholath MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira, Kharar MLA Kanwar Sandhu,  Maur MLA Jagdev Singh Kamalu, Mansa MLA Nazar Singh Mansahia, Jaiton MLA Baldev Singh, Raikot MLA Jagtar Singh Jagga Hissowal, Garhshankar MLA Jai Krishan Rori and Bhadaur MLA Pirmal Singh Khalsa. Mansahia will be the member secretary of the ad hoc committee.

While making this announcement, 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 shall be declared soon.

The ad-hoc state PAC will supervise the re-structuring of the entire political unit of the state including the appointment of the state president or convenor. It will also set up the party structure at the district 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 the reconstitution of the structure of AAP in the state after the AAP volunteers convention at Bathinda on August 2.

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.
