Senior PDP leader and Lok Sabha MP Muzaffar Hussain Baig, yesterday, chaired the first meeting of the party’s amendment committee at his Jammu residence.  

The six-member committee with Baig as its Chairman has been constituted to update the organisation’s constitution in tune with the avowed objectives envisaged in the First Declaration and later incorporated in its preamble.

According to PDP statement, Baig highlighted the reasons for constituting the committee. “Any proposals should hinge on the basic objective of the party to raise its stock as a purposeful, grass-root party based on stated goals, reflective of aspirations of the people. The changes if any will be structural and reiteration of party’s known agenda,” Baig said.  

All the five members, Rafi Ahmad Mir, Nizamuddin Bhat, Syed Basharat Bukhari, Ved Mahajan and Asgar Ali participated in the meeting. Bhat was assigned the job to function as the secretary of the committee. 

“Several amendments were proposed by the members during three-hour long deliberations to make the constitution elaborate and more perfect to further the cause of people of the state and to encompass their political, economic, social needs through unambiguous goals and a viable and highly inclusive party structure,” the statement said.  

“The members focused on how can constitution guide and help in ensuring activities involving the masses in a free, democratic manner, orient the party cadre into a discipline through transparent process for larger public service and commitment towards party’s growth and viability,” it said. 

“In this regard some amendments are conceived to further strengthen the basic units from the lowest Mohalla Committees and Ward Committees upto the highest bodies at district , provincial and state level,” it added.
