“The government is thinking of saving the breed of buffaloes but it is mum over other issues in the society. Our society is weakening due to marriages in the same village, adjacent villages of brotherhood and same clan. Due to such marriages, conflict and social tension have escalated. Our foot march to Chandigarh from Hisar will start soon,” she added.

She further added that the village panchayats will pass resolutions on these issues and send the same to the state government to make it a legislation.
