For the first time ever, the city is all set to host a combined mango-coconut-flower show. Participants from across the country will take part in the event, which is likely to be held in the second week of May.

The exact date and venue are yet to be decided by the Haryana State Agricultural and Marketing Board (HSAMB), the organisers of the show.

“We have to complete several tasks such as informing participants. Even they have to collect varieties of fruits, flowers,” said TVSN Prasad, chief administrator, HSAMB.

The event may be held in the open ground close to Rajiv Chowk, behind the Mini Secretariat.

Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda is likely to inaugurate the festival. Farmers from across Delhi, Punjab, UP, Maharashtra, Haryana etc will participate in the show. A dedicated bus service to ferry participants from Delhi and Chandigarh to Gurgaon will be put in place. htc
