Call Given At Gurgaon Mahapanchayat; Jat Neta Opposes Move
The anger against the Jats over the violent quota agitation that claimed 30 lives spread on Saturday after 35 communities from over 100 villages decided to boycott them from all social functions. They also demanded that the agitators be booked for murder.The decision was taken at a mahapanchayat of over 100 villages including Manesar, Sikanderpur Sihi, Nakhrola, Rampura, Shikohpur, Teekli, Khoh, Bilaspur, Norangpur and Kherki on Saturday in Nakhrola village under the chairmanship of former sarpanch Nathu Singh of Mohammadpur Jharsa village.Villagers expressed anger over the destruction caused by the agitators and demanded action against them.
“Nobody can hurt the lives of others to gain supremacy. What the Jats have done is unacceptable and they should be punished for it. We have de cided to boycott them from all social functions. Any community disobeying the order will also face our wrath,” said Om Prakash Yadav, former sarpanch of Manesar.
Expressing their support for CM Manohar Lal Khattar, attendants at the mahapanchayat claimed this was not an agitation for quota, but a conspiracy against a non-Jat CM. “Jats have ruled the state for over 40 years and still they claim they are weak. It appears the CM is scared of losing his chair and is thus going soft on them, but we wish to guarantee him nobody will be allowed to threaten his position. From now, he will have the support of all 35 communities present here. The police, which is full of Jats, knew that the arson and looting was on, but did nothing. We want action against them too,” said the sarpanch of Nakhrola. A Jat leader, who wished to remain unidentified, said, “Condemning an entire community is not right. Even we are against what happened.
Preliminary probe has revealed the nuisance was primarily carried out by non-Jat antisocials to defame us. We are against violence and support any demand of action against those who committed crimes, but the entire community cannot be boycotted.”
