OPS As Agenda During Himachal Pradesh Assembly Polls
The grand-old party had campaigned in the hill state promising to implement the OPS again which was scrapped by earlier government.
The OPS was one of the significant agenda on the list of Congress to convince people to bring them in power. In all her rallies, Senior Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra strove to tell people how the previous government did injustice by doing away with the scheme for the state employees.
As the Congress returned to power after a gap of five-year-term in the Himachal Pradesh, the party began to focus all its efforts on restoring the OPS.
