He said the dalits had been protesting for past nearly four months demanding CBI probe into the Jind's Dalit girl gangrape and murder case this year and an ordinance by the state government to make the SC/ST Act more stringent.
"We had a meeting with Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on March 7. He had then said that all our demands will be met within 15 days," he said, adding their demands remained unfulfilled.
On May 31, the 120 individuals belonging to Dalit community from Haryana's Jind district converted to Buddhism in Delhi, Mr Khapad said.
The protesters were also demanding employment for the kin of two martyrs killed in Jammu and Kashmir and government jobs for the family members of a man murdered in Jind.
"This government showed its anti-Dalit approach and we were left with no other choice," he added.
He said if the government still does not accept their demands, "thousands of others will convert to Buddhism in August".
