The party has given a 30-point agenda to its workers. They have to implement it over the next three months. Those who accomplish the task will be given tickets. A special team has been constituted to examine the implementation, he said. Those who do not fare well in the 30-point agenda will be dropped immediately, he added. 

The party hopes to orient its leaders towards building a grassroots movement with the 2023 polls as a target, in the ongoing workshop.
