Jammu, February 9

To placate annoyed senior leaders of the party, the beleaguered PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday dissolved all committees of Jammu province with immediate effect.

According to a spokesman of the party, “It is hereby informed that the posts of all office-bearers at provincial, district and zonal level in the party stand dissolved.” Sources in the PDP said annoyed founder members of the party during their meeting with Mehbooba Mufti on January 30 had demanded that all provincial committees of the Jammu should be dissolved with immediate effect. “From day one, after the appointment of Hamid Choudhary as vice-president of the party, there is a strong anger among Jammu-based founder members of the party,” a source said, adding, “a majority of the senior leaders are not attending any activities of the party for the last nearly one month.”

Founder members of party, including former MP Tirlok Singh Bajwa, Ved Mahajan, Daman Bhasin, Choudhary Hussain Ali and Rashid Malik, stayed away from Mehbooba’s interaction with party activists. “In her effort to mollify the annoyed senior leaders, Mehbooba Mufti met TS Bajwa, Ved Mahajan and Surinder Choudhary, MLC, the same evening,” a source said, adding, “the dissolution of the Jammu units is the first step towards pacifying enraged leaders.”
