The statement said that the party's national leadership would ensure that the provisions of its constitution with regard to structure, roles and powers of party leadership at all levels were always respected.

"Members of the committees are indeed notable and respectable leaders of the party who know that it is not within their schedule to interfere with the party structures in the states,’’ it said.
