But state committee members from Thrissur pointed out that Samastha Kerala Sunni Students Federation had announced a mega event in district  as part of its state conference and booked the auditoriums.

 Following this, the state committee decided to hold the conference in Alappuzha.  Ahead of the state meet, branch-level conferences will be held from October which will be followed by area and district-level conferences. 

The conferences will witness change of guard in the party state unit as the last party congress had decided to limit the term of secretaries from local committee to the general secretary-level to three.
