Conclusion: From my point of view both Punjab and Haryana state are equally flourishing and growing in every sector. Moreover, the Haryana state is much more developed than Punjab may be because of the neighboring capital city Delhi. It's per capita income is almost that of Eastern Europe, while Punjab is next to African countries. Drugs & alcohol are a big problem in Punjab and almost unheard of here. Punjabi people also eat meat but Haryanvi people are mostly vegetarian.
