The plenary will discuss the roadmap for the upcoming election in 2023 and General Election in 2024.
Addressing a joint press conference, party General Secretary Tariq Anwar said, "In the plenary the roadmap for the election will be discussed as the party has rejuvenated during the Bharat Jodo Yatra.

On February 24 there will be a steering committee meeting which will lay down the agenda in the plenary and, "we will fight for the common people and divisive agenda of the BJP."

The plenary session will be held from February 24 to 26.
