Chandigarh, December 1 (Trinew)
The historical village of Ambala district – Panjokhara will now be known as ‘Panjokhara Sahib’. The Central Government has approved changing the name of this village. After the approval of the Centre, now a fresh notification for this will be issued by the Haryana Government. Home and Health Minister Anil Vij was trying to change the name of this village for a long time.
Keeping in view the religious importance of Panjokhara village, Vij had discussed with the state government to name the village Panjokhara Sahib. Due to his efforts, a proposal to rename Panjokhara as ‘Panjokhara Sahib’ was passed in the Haryana Assembly session. This proposal was sent by the state government to the central government to mention the name of the village as Panjokhara Sahib in the government records. Now no objection was raised by the Central Government on this proposal. After this, Haryana Government will soon issue its notification. Apart from the Haryana Government, the information about changing the name of the village has also been given by the Central Government to the Home Ministry, Survey of India, Directorate of Map Publication, National Geo Spatial Data Center and other departments.
