After hosting the grand event of 50th anniversary of Haryana on November 1, Gurugram was again chosen as the destination for the two-day mega event of Pravasi Haryanvi Divas (NRI Haryanvi event).
The two-day event from January 10 to 11 is being organised at the Kingdom of Dreams in Sector 29, Gurugram. This is the first time that such an event is been organised in the state. Around 400 Haryanvi NRIs from 33 countries have come to the event.
In addition to the NRIs, all famous personalities from Haryana have also been invited to the event.
On Tuesday, Haryanvi celebrities like Kapil Dev, Deepa Malik, Akhil Kumar and Joginder Sharma were felicitated at the event. The Haryana government which has used the motto of Connected By Roots, United By Vision hopes to bring massive investments from the NRIs to the state through the event.
The event commenced on Tuesday evening. Among the dignitaries who were present on the opening day were Union Power Minister Piyush Goel, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and various other important ministers and officials from the state.
