Show political will, resolve SYL imbroglio: BJP to Capt Amarinder Singh

Tribune News Service

Jhajjar, July 28

State BJP president Om Prakash Dhankar has appealed to Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh to show political will in resolving the long-pending imbroglio concerning the Sutlej-Yamuna Link (SYL) canal.

“Haryana and its farmers have been waiting for their share of the SYL canal waters for long. It is an opportunity for Capt Amarinder to show political will and take a decision. Punjab is a ‘daata’ (giver) and Haryana is a ‘leta’ (taker) in this matter,” he told the media here on Tuesday.

The Supreme Court has asked the Chief Ministers of Punjab and Haryana to attempt a negotiated settlement of the SYL canal issue that has defied any solution for decades in spite of several rounds of litigation.

Meanwhile, Dhankar said BJP president JP Nadda would inaugurate party’s offices in six districts — Rewari, Hisar, Nuh, Palwal, Fatehabad and Sonepat — through video-conferencing on Wednesday.

Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar would participate from Chandigarh, while Dhankar would be present at the Hisar function.

Chandigarh: State Congress chief Kumari Selja tweeted, “The state has the right over the SYL waters. Haryana has been waiting for long for the canal waters. There should be no more delay. The matter should be resolved soon.”
