The first proposal of the domestic structure is to add two mechanisms to the Constitution in order to unearth the truth.

One mechanism is to set up a legitimate commission to prevent incident of the nature.

The second proposal is to establish a judiciary mechanism comprising of legal luminaries in order to protect the right to claim compensation.

A special office to facilitate this is also included under this proposal.

The fourth proposal is of paramount importance as it recommended to introduce a mechanism to prevent any youth uprising or terrorism.
