A new struggle saga was written in the history of the country. The Hati community of Giripar was fighting peacefully for the last 55 years. The struggle was going on for three generations, but from Shimla to Delhi, the ship of this issue could not be found. On March 5, 2022, an important meeting of the Central Hati Committee was held with Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur. In this meeting, there was full hope of realizing the legitimate demand. This meeting proved to be a change in the direction and direction of taking the long journey of this issue to the destination. Kundan Singh Shastri, general secretary of the Central Hati Committee, said this in a special conversation with Amar Ujala.
Shastri said there has been a long struggle over this issue. Many encouragers were found and some discouraged them, but the struggle continued. Former MLA Baldev Tomar, who was the most important link in bringing the struggle to the end, got full support. With their cooperation, the Central Committee was able to keep the matter in full detail in its meeting with Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur in Shimla on March 5. Then on April 14, 2022, in front of Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Delhi, the Chief Minister was successful in putting forth the demand of three lakh Haatis in the best possible way.
In the decades-long battle of Hati, both these meetings were the turning point and very important in producing meaningful results. After decades of long wait and curiosity, the Hati community of 14 sub-castes native to the Giripar region has got the constitutional rights of the tribe. As expected, on September 14, a special resolution has been passed in the Union Cabinet and its approval has been received. Hearty congratulations and best wishes to all the three lakh Haatis of our Giripar region for this great achievement. This peaceful long struggle of three generations in 55 years will be remembered in history.
