Nagaur district had the oldest history of Panchyati Raj Institution in independent India as they were inaugurated by the then Prime Minister Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru on October 24, 1952. And Degana was then part of a very large but single Gram Panchayat of 19 villages. During the first Panchayat elections, area of the present town forming part of Chandaroon Gram Panchayat elected a very young & compassionate man Kana Ram Jajunda its first Sarpanch.
Jajunda had a long political & social influence ever since till his demise on 28 August 2007. During last 12 years Kana Ram Jajunda did lot of organizing work to spread the message & vision of his political ideology since he joined Bharatiya Janata Party in 1996.
BJP had hardly any presence in the whole of Nagaur district. It required continouos & untiring organizational efforts from a man with direct appeal with the people. And Jajunda beacme instrumental in being the bridge between the party & the people.
In 1996 BJP recorded its first victory on Nagaur MP seat & grew from strength to strength. And the long & untiring efforts of this man in his eighties brought laurels to the party in form of 9 out of 10 MLA constituencies won by BJP in last Vidhan Sabha elections in 2003. The only exception was the Degana consituency where Kana Ram Jajunda did not contest elections due to health issues even after being offered the ticket by his party, BJP.
