PARTYMEN HOSTILE TO PATIL’S SUGGESTIONS

AMBALA, FRIDAY, JULY 11, 1969

BANGALORE, July 10 (UNI, PTI)—The Patil committee’s recommendations to double the primary membership fee and the suggestion for extra contributions by those holding elective posts in the organisations met with rank-and-file hostility during the All-India Congress Committee’s opening day debate on party reorganisation. Mr. S.K. Patil, who introduced the official proposals for overhauling the Congress Constitution, drew a gloomy picture of the party’s financial position and pleaded that there was no alternative but for members themselves to generate funds for the party. Judging from the tenor of today’s debate, the A-ICC delegates are reluctant to be convinced by the arguments of Mr. Patil, whose reorganisation panel’s recommendations formed the basis of official amendments to the constitution.
