CHARDWAR (BALIPARA), Feb 3 � Brisk preparations are under way to hold the 47th annual conference of the All Bodo Students� Union (ABSU) hosted by a local celebration committee led by noted social worker Kanta Narzary and HoD, Department of English, Rangapara College, Anthony Basumatary, with a three-day programme starting February 6 at Gwjwn Fwthar here (A platform of peace) with an aim of mobilising a strong opinion for a �Total Revolution for Total Change in the Boro Society�.

It may be mentioned here that the programme which was scheduled to be held from January 16 with a five-day programme had to be postponed following the delicate situation after the recent NDFB(S) carnage, and was therefore rescheduled to be held on February 6, 7 and 8.
