New Delhi: The BJP will hold a month-long campaign starting from June to mark the first anniversary of the Modi 2.0 government and will hold digital rallies in all districts across the country, its general secretary Bhupendra Yadav said.
Underlining that the party stood with the general public in the fight against COVID-19, Yadav said the party workers distributed 19 crore food packets and more than 4 crore packets of ration across the country.
Addressing the media via video conference, he said, "Amid the corona crisis the BJP workers were on the ground. They were serving people in all 909 organisational districts across the country and providing them all necessary help.
Besides food, the party workers also distributed more than 5 crore masks, made people aware through the Aarogya Setu app, and motivated them to contribute to the PM CARES fund."
Speaking about the first anniversary of the Modi 2.0 government, Yadav said, "The party will hold digital rallies across the country and its seven wings will also hold 500 digital rallies in their respective fields.
BJP president JP Nadda will also address party workers through Facebook Live on this occasion, he said.

When asked about the upcoming Bihar elections, Yadav, who is also party in-charge for the state, said it is for the Election Commission to decide when and how polls should be held.
