Nagpur: The proposed national convention of BJP MPs and legislators scheduled to be held here from February 8-10 has been cancelled, party sources said on Thursday.

The convention has been cancelled in view of the President`s visit to the city and non-availability of VVIP accommodation at the Government circuit house, Ravi Bhawan, they said.

Moreover, Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee has convened a meeting of the Opposition on February 8 to chalk out a strategy for the forthcoming Parliament budget session
and to end the deadlock over JPC demand by the BJP-led Opposition, the sources added.
