This is how Haryana became
In 1955, Akali leaders demanded the division of Punjab on the basis of religion. The Central Government accepted the recommendations of the Parliamentary Committee on an in-principle basis. On April 23, 1966, the Punjab Boundary Commission was constituted for the formation of a separate state. On June 12, 1966, the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi announced the creation of Haryana as a separate state on the radio. The bill was passed in Parliament on 7 September 1966. On 18 September, the President approved the formation. Haryana came into existence on November
Demand for Haryana arose in Lahore in 1923
The demand for making Haryana a separate state was first raised by Swami Satyanand in Lahore (Pakistan) in 1923. After this, the demand for making Haryana a separate state was raised at the All India Student Conference in Meerut under the chairmanship of Deenbandhu Chhotu Ram. Pandit Deshbandhu Gupta, Pandit Nekiram Sharma, and Pandit Shriram Sharma also made efforts for the formation of the state. The first general elections were held in 1952, in which Ch. 38 Congress MLAs, including Devi Lal, were elected. to create a separate state. Then Union Home Minister GB Pant in Delhi received a signed memorandum from 125 MLAs from Uttar Pradesh and Haryana regions. In 1953, Ch. Devi Lal put forward the demand for the creation of a separate Haryana state in front of the State Reorganization Commission set up by the Government of India.
The High Court’s dream will be fulfilled soon

Punjab is not agreeing on SYL
The Sutlej Yamuna Link Canal (SYL) dispute still persists. Punjab is not agreeing to give canal water to its neighbor, Haryana. Despite the order of the SC, Punjab refused to build the canal. The central government is mediating, but Punjab is not working out. The southern part of Haryana is facing a severe water crisis due to non-receipt of water from Punjab. Punjab has filled its share of the canal with soil.
This is how Ram came. Gaya Ram’s proverb
For example, Haryana was known throughout the country for its defection politics in the form of Aya-Ram and Gaya-Ram. In 1967, Gaya Lal was elected MLA from Palwal’s Hasanpur Legislative Assembly. He changed the party thrice in a single day. First, he left the hand of Congress and joined the Janata Party. Then he came back to Congress after a while. After about 9 hours, he had a change of heart and once again went to the Janata Party. After that, he came back to Congress. Then the then Congress leader, Rao Birender Singh, reached Chandigarh with him and, while interacting with the media, said that Gaya Ram is now Aaya Ram. After this, Aaya Ram and Gaya Ram started being used for defectors.
