The decision was taken at a mahapanchayat of the Bawaniya Khap in Singhani village of the district.Ramswaroop Sidhnawa, pradhan of the khap, said a 21-member committee comprising Loharu MLA Om Prakash Badwa, ex-MLAs who contested election from Loharu had been formed to resist any much attempt. The mahapanchayat threatened to launch a stir in case their aspirations were ignored.The state government’s move to declare Charkhi Dadri subdivision as the state’s 22nd district has not come easy on the people of Loharu subdivision.Surender Rathi, sarpanch of Singhani village, said, “All important educational institutes, degree colleges, universities and the HSEB headquarters are at Bhiwani which is 48kms from Loharu. On the other hand, Charkhi Dadri has no prominent educational institutes and is more than 60kms from Loharu. It is not practically feasible to merge Loharu with Charkhi Dadri.”He said a delegation comprising residents of 52 villages, including from Bahal block, will meet the Deputy Commissioner on September 28 to express their desire to remain part of Bhiwani.
