The Haryana state government also has an agenda to plant trees, add public art, sculptures, lights everywhere in the state, throughout the year. The Government is keeping more focus towards keeping the cities clean and green. Overall, the objective of this Golden Jubilee celebration is to make Haryana a Golden State. There will also be a mobile rail exhibition, to show the progress of the state, and its history in all major cities.
The State Government has even drafted a celebration calendar from November 1, 2016 to October 31, 2017 to mark the special year for organizing cultural festivals, national conventions and for launching welfare schemes throughout the state. The idea behind these long celebrations is to not only showcase the rich history of the state, but also to focus on the advancements and future plans of and for Haryana’s betterment.
To start the celebrations, on Nov 1, 2016 i.e., Haryana’s 50th Birthday, a grand opening for this huge function was organized in Gurgaon, also known as Gurugram. Our honourable PM Modi, Haryana’s CM Manohar Lal Khttar and many cabinet ministers were present for this function in which our PM gifted all us (the state of Haryana) with the new development schemes. The cultural programs depicted the true, pure and colorful culture of Haryana, the pious land of the Vedas.
Even at MDC Sec 4 Panchkula, Mansa Devi Panchkula, we can see beautiful and colorful Jhaankiyan that depicts the state’s rich art and culture & glorious history and heritage. These Jhaankiyan were seen inside the Mansa Devi Temple Area. As per the caretakers, they will travel across whole Haryana in this year and will make Haryanvi’s proud of their motherland. Check these out, how pretty they look and how wonderfully they’re showcasing Haryana’s amazing past, present and future!
These floats were situated at MDC in Panchkula, and will tour the entire Haryana State over the next 365 days.
