Tribune News Service
New Delhi, December 16

Responding to the representation from BJP MPs and MLAs seeking Central intervention for speedy construction of the Sutlej-Yamuna Link (SYL) canal, Union Minister of State for Jal Shakti Rattan Lal Kataria on Wednesday said the Union Government would take up the issue with Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh soon.

"The Union Government is trying for an amicable resolution to the SYL issue between the two state governments," Kataria said, adding that the process would be followed up with the Punjab Government.

"The Punjab Chief Minister had assured us during the meeting on August 18 that he would organise the second round of talks on the SYL at his residence soon, but it could not materialise due to Covid. The ministry will follow it up with the Punjab Chief Minister," he said.
