Lok Sabha polls: In Hisar, political legacies of three families at stake; parties campaign fiercely in searing heat
Hisar is predominantly Jat land, where the community constitutes nearly 33 percent of the total 16 lakh electors, ahead of the Bishnois.
One of the earliest known communities who believe in the sanctity of all life, the Bishnois have fiercely protected nature and animals around them, for over 500 years, allowing them to survive in the harsh Thar desert.
Jat reservation bill passed by the assembly is a 'win-win' for all, no section stands to lose: CM Khattar
Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said the Jat reservation bill passed by the assembly today was a "win-win" for all and "no section stands to lose".
