New Delhi: The Jat Mahapanchayat, which had demanded ticket for Parvesh Verma, son of former Chief Minister Sahib Singh Verma, from the West Delhi Lok Sabha constituency, has decided to give the BJP more time to reconsider the issue.

An 11-member committee of the Mahapanchayat met on Sunday and requested the BJP leadership to reconsider the decision.

Earlier, the supporters of Mr. Verma had demanded the party leadership to reverse their decision to field MLA Jagdish Mukhi from the West Delhi seat.

The Mahapanchayat will take a decision after a week on its future course of action, a functionary of the Mahapanchayat said.
