Will get our share, says JP Dalal, Agricultural Minister

Karnal, August 18

Agriculture Minister JP Dalal is hopeful that Haryana would get its share of the Sutlej-Yamuna Link (SYL) waters.

"The moot point of the discussion among the Centre, Punjab and Haryana is to finalise an agency to construct the remaining part of the SYL canal," he told the media at the Central Soil Salinity Research Institute (CSSRI) here on Tuesday on the sideline of a state-level seminar of farmers and scientists on the effective management of stubble.

To a query on the Baroda byelection, Dalal said the Congress was not in the fight as it did nothing to develop the segment. "I have visited the segment and people there have complained about the Congress not launching any development project," he said.

Later, addressing farmers and scientists, the Agriculture Minister said efforts were being made for the effective management of stubble and farmers were being made aware of the harmful effects of stubble-burning.
