Tribune News Service

Mahendragarh, December 30

Former MLA and chief of the Haryana Yuva Kisan Sangharsh Samiti Naresh Yadav, along with his supporters, launched the 'Jal Adhikar Yatra' from Ateli town here on Wednesday.

The yatra will culminate at Rashtrapati Bhawan in Delhi. He is demanding the construction of the SYL canal so that people of south Haryana could get its water.

"I have been raising the issue of the SYL canal for the past three decades. I have also called on Union Ministers Gajendra Singh Sekhawat and Narendra Tomar, demanding the Centre's intervention for ensuring Haryana the share of the SYL canal but nothing concrete has been done. So, I was forced to launch the yatra to highlight the issue again," said Yadav while addressing a public meeting in Ateli town.

He said Haryana needed water from the SYL canal as many parts of the state had turned into dark zones due to the scarcity of the water.
