should take decisions that do good to the society and have positive impact on
it. I think all the decisions taken by the Khap

that people can learn something from that", Yadav told reporters.
"If anything is in the larger interest of
people and society, there is nothing wrong", he told reporters in Dholpur of Rajasthan after attending
the golden jubilee function of Rastriya
Military School of which he is an alumnus. Asked if the recent Khap diktat in his state would do
anything good to society, he said, "that I don't know. It is for the media

Panchayat in Asara Village of District Baghpat in Uttar Pradesh recently
issued a diktat banning love marriages and barred women under the age of 40
from going out for shopping and using mobile phones outside their homes. In the
function, he said that alumnus of the school are in the service of the nation
in different capacities. Army officials were also present at the function where
