''We have called a party meeting on March 6 and urged PCC president Priyaranjan Dasmunsi to be present at the meeting as the budget session would begin on that day and the party's elected members were preparing to raise their voice against the ruling party's anti-people policies in the Assembly, he said.

''We will also discuss on the Congress-led UPA government's flagship programmes, including the NRGES, law and order, education for all to the rural areas, the CLP leader said.
