The genesis of the conflict can be traced back to Rajat Dalal addressing the issues in numerous Instagram stories, where he stressed that the dispute with Sourav should not be turned into a vendetta between the Rajput and Jaat communities. He urged his followers not to propagate the conflict and refrained from disclosing the reason for the altercation.
Rajat Dalal stated, “It is evident that some Jaat community pages have been sharing my videos on their page to show support. However, I request everyone not to turn this into a confrontation between two communities – Jaat and Rajput. All Rajputs are my brothers. No issues should arise between the communities because of the actions of one or two individuals. I have never disrespected your community, and I am not in a position to do so. Therefore, do not escalate the rivalry based on social media content. Brotherhood should always prevail.”
Additionally, fans took to Sourav Singh Rajput’s social media accounts to verify the authenticity of the fight. According to online news reports, Rajat Dalal was the first to upload the contentious video that captivated the internet.
