He said that the invitation to the program has been sent to former West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharya, Leader of the outgoing House, Abdul Mannan and senior CPI (M) leader Biman Bose. The official said that in view of the current circumstances of the covid-19 epidemic in the country, Chief Ministers of other states and leaders of other political parties have not been invited to the ceremony.
