The convention will be held at Pathanapuram St Stephen’s School ground on April 16 at 10 am. “The officers were reluctant to give permission. Citing the presence of the polling station and the strong room they informed us it will be inappropriate to conduct the convention. But we contended it is undemocratic,” said Bindu.

The permission has come when we are planning to launch a protest against the same,” said Bindu. Meanwhile, Special Branch officers said they are yet to receive such an intimation.
