Rs 51 lakh for Jat Dharamshala. He said land for a hostel to be built by Jat Dharamshala would be arranged through the Kurukshetra Development Board or Haryana Shehri Vikas Pradhikaran. The state government will observe Dhanna Bhagat Jayanti on April 21 at the state level. The venue will be finalized soon.
