During the functions, the participants, especially youths, would consume alcohol and then drive, leading to mishaps, the meeting noted.
Om Prakash Dhankar, a participant in the meeting, said their delegation will soon meet Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and demand a ban on night marriages.
"Khap representatives will visit villages of their areas to convince people not to organise marriages of their wards at night so that rising rates of road accident could be brought down after restraining youths from consuming liquor," he said.
The khaps also sought amendment in the Hindu Marriage Act to make way for a ban on marriages within the same gotra (clan).
Another participant Hardeep Singh said khaps will work towards informing people about the "negative fallouts" of such marriages.
