Khattar lauds Khaps for resolving social problems
Heaping praises on Khap Panchayats, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday said these groups have always been a significant contributor in resolving social issues and are part of "our traditions".
Even today Khaps are playing an important role in redressing public grievances as well as strengthening the feeling of brotherhood, Khattar said at a felicitation function organised by Sarvjatiya <g data-gr-id="20">Kandela</g> <g data-gr-id="21">Khap</g> and Kandela Gram Panchayat in Jind district.
"However, time and again many misconceptions are spread about <g data-gr-id="14">Khaps</g> that they are unconstitutional bodies, but I have always been saying that <g data-gr-id="15">Khaps</g> act as custodian of our social customs," he said.
<g data-gr-id="16">Khap</g> not only delivers <g data-gr-id="13">judgments</g> but it also exhorts the citizens, he said, adding, "I was born in Nidana village which is under Maham Chaubisi <g data-gr-id="17">Khap</g>." He thanked the Khap panchayats for their role in <g data-gr-id="11">implementation</g> of 'Beti Bachao, Beti <g data-gr-id="19">Padhao</g>' programme.
