Historical Aspects for the emergence of Haryana as a State

The origin of the demand of Haryana State can be visualised in its historical perspective. Due to emotional participation in the Ist war of Independence by the Haryanvis, a spirit of vengeance was smouldering in the hearts of the British rulers. Hence Haryana region was tagged with the Punjab in 1858 as a political punishment to the people of this region. "Of course, it was their political isolation but they were still more related socially and culturally to the people of Delhi and the Western U.P.1". They had lost political boundaries but they maintained the cultural ties of Roti and Beti.
