Sonepat (Har) : A Khap Mahapanchayat held here has appealed to the Centre and Haryana government to grant ‘Khaps’ the status of Lok Adalats as their decisions on various issues were “unanimous.”

The meeting, attended by about 70 Khaps, said yesterday that they were open to government representatives taking part in such meetings and voicing their opinions in the debates. They also demanded that marriage in the same gotra should be banned and suggested amendments to the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955, a Khap member said. This, they claimed, would keep a check on the growing number of crimes against women, reports PTI.
