In south, it was a big challenge for Aurangzeb to win Golkunda Fort in Hyderabad. He decided to fight Gurilla war. For this he needed people who could do it for him. He started a search for the people all over. Finally he found Jats in and around Delhi , who could were expert in Gurilla war. He pleaded Jats to fight for him, to which Jats agreed. An army of 700-800 Jats was formed. By showing amazing courage of bravery Jats conquered Golkunda Fort for him. After winning Golkunda Fort, Aurangzeb as an award and for the security of fort gifted lands to these Jats for settlement in and around Hyderabad. As the time passed , dynasties changed and land given to them decreased but the population increased. A time finally came, when the same Jats who won the Fort, their decedents became small farmer and labours.

Today there are around 40,000 Jats in Hyderabad from Ramdevguda to Nalagunda having history in their hearts but neither centre Govt nor state Govt has done anything for them. They are neither considered backward nor Telgu speaking people. As their colour changed with time so changed their gottars , but in genes they have Jat blood. [4]
