A State-level convention would be held at Talabania at 10 am on December 26 (Tuesday), informed the party's State secretary Bijay Nayak in a statement. Registration would begin at 9 am, said Nayak.

He said preparations have already started for the proposed meeting. Around 25 to 30 thousand party workers will join the meeting. Leaders belonging to all wings of the party will remain present.
