Drabu declines to be part of political affairs committee of PDP
SRINAGAR, Sep 8: Dr Haseeb Drabu has declined to be part of political affairs committee of PDP.

Drabu along with Syed Altaf Bukhari were nominated as political affairs committee members yesterday, however, Drabu flatly refused to be part of such ‘powerful’ committee.

In a letter to party chief Mehbooba Mufti, Drabu has said PAC lacks authority due to its unbridled expansion.

“PAC has in recent past, not only lacked authority but was consciously made to be seen as lacking authority. In this context, the ongoing party re-organization and reconstitution of the PAC appears to be a more of an appeasement than atonement. No wonder the party constitutional limit on members of the PAC has been breached. In addition to 18 members (as against the stipulated 11) there are 10 invitees taking the number to 28.”

As per the letter, “after giving it a serious thought, I am afraid, I am not convinced that the PAC is genuinely empowered to pursue whatever is required to bring back the politics of the state from its current state of abyss.”

“Nor is it able to function in a framework of open and emancipated deliberations to find way of repairing and restoring the value system of the civil society which has been seriously impaired.”

“I thank you for your nomination but regret my inability to be a part of this PAC,” Drabu concludes his letter by thanking party president Mehbooba Mufti.
