In this Haryana district, a “khap mahapanchayat” is currently meeting to discuss the next steps to be taken in the agitation regarding the wrestlers’ issue.
From numerous locations, including Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh, the representatives of several khaps and farmers’ organisations arrived in Jat Dharamshala.
In support of the wrestlers who have accused outgoing Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief and BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh of sexually harassing female grapplers, including a minor, farmer organisations held a “khap mahapanchayat” in Uttar Pradesh and a number of protests in Punjab and Haryana on Thursday.
Rakesh Tikait, the leader of the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU), told reporters that the wrestlers represent the pride of the nation and that all they are asking for is justice in the matter before the “mahapanchayat” began in the afternoon.
According to Tikait, several organisations and khaps are organising meetings in other states, such as Maharashtra and Rajasthan, to call for action against the “injustice being done to the country’s daughters” while they are convening at Kurukshetra.
