Haryana day celebrations that used to be state celebration in the past, has taken a political color this time. In the past The Government of Haryana along with the politicians of ruling party used to celebrate it in a officious ambience. But this time when Haryana’s sports persons brought accolades to the nations by winning several medals at CWG, it became a game of who owns the players between the Ruling party and the INLD, both making claims and refuting the claims of each other. INLD went a step forward and instead of celebrating the birth anniversary of Ch Devi Lal on 25th September (The biological birthday of Chaudhari Devi Lal) decided to postpone it to November 1st and declared that this year Ch Devilal’s Birthday shall be celebrated on 1st November concurrent with Haryana day, The INLD has christened this day as Haryana Samman Diwas. Congress has planned a big rally on the same day at Sonepat. While the INLD whose rallies are always a runaway success has chosen Gurgaon as the venue. Both the parties are putting up weight behind their workers and leaders to make their respective rallies a show one up on the other.
In this turn of events Haryana day and the honoring of the sportsperson seems to be loser, as these two have became mere game of the two organizers.
