Jaipur: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Monday said that Khap Panchayats should take such stands that have positive impact and benefit the entire society.
"Khaps should take decisions that do good to the society and have positive impact on it. I think all the decisions taken by the Khap Panchayat should be in favour of the people, for the welfare of society so 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 to debate and discuss".
A Khap Panchayat in 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 students presented cultural programmes.
