"This programme will boost the morale of our workers," Kashyap said in a statement here.

Various campaigns will be run by the party's frontal organisations in the run-up to the May 30 programme.

"We will run awareness programmes like the world's largest vaccination drive during the pandemic, providing nine crore families free ration, completing the construction of Atal Tunnel, and fulfilling demand over the construction of Renuka Dam that had been pending since 1993, are among major achievements for a small state like Himachal," he said.
