Over forty ministers form the Vaishya community from across states like Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh  Jharkhand, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, and across different political parties like BJP, INC, AAP, JMM, Apna Dal etc. “While their political affiliations may  be varied however Maharaja Agrasen’s holy and ancient land is the common tread that binds them together,” Subhashji said.

Subhashji also expressed his gratitude towards members of the Vaishya community who travelled long distances and came to Agroha Dham to be a part of the festivities. “May Goddess Mahalaxmi and Maharaja Agrasen bless you,” he tweeted.

Subhashji also announced the plan to make a huge museum and auditorium in Agroha with a fund of Rs 25 crores. He also announced that an application for the new bank dedicated to the Vaishya community has been submitted to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and he promised that it will be a bank that belongs to the entire community not just a few.
