New Delhi, November 2 – The Manohar Lal-led government of Haryana marked the 57th anniversary of Haryana Day with a momentous celebration, the Antyodaya Mahasammelan, held in the city of Karnal. This event served as a testament to the state’s unwavering commitment to uplifting the marginalized sections of society and promoting gender equality as fundamental pillars of progress.
The Antyodaya Mahasammelan, graced by the presence of Union Home and Cooperation Minister Amit Shah, underscored the government’s resolute dedication to realizing the Antyodaya vision of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya, which places inclusive development at its core.

The Antyodaya Mahasammelan did not just champion social service but also provided an essential platform for the empowerment of women. This reflects the unwavering commitment of Chief Minister Manohar Lal to fostering inclusive development and gender equality in the state. His relentless efforts have yielded remarkable progress in women’s representation within Panchayati Raj Institutions, with more than 50 percent of these institutions now boasting the active participation of educated women.
