Basically I am from Haryana and being a haryanvi I would like to enlight the sacrifice of our haryanvi freedom fighter ' SIR CHOTU RAM ' . Sir Chhotu Ram was a prominent politician in British India's Punjab Province, an ideologue of the pre-Independent India, who belonged to the Jat community and championed the interest of oppressed communities of the Indian subcontinent. Critics may call Chhotu Ram a caste leader, but he also sought to articulate the suffering of the peasantry. His basic thesis was that farming was the primary human activity.Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveils a statue of Deenbandhu Sir Chhotu Ram at Sampla in Rohtak, Tuesday, Oct 9, 2018 .
