Chandigarh, October 5, 2023: The SYL canal issue is the Centre of hot debate in Punjab these days. The Supreme Court has directed the the Centre to conduct a survey of Land for SYL canal in Punjab.
Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann called the emergency Cabinet meeting and said that Punjab does not have a single drop of water to share with anyone. Other than what we are already giving to the other states, no additional water will be given.
Punjab opposition parties Congress, SAD and BJP leaders also make it clear that Punjab does not have water to share, while condemning Bhagwant Mann lead AAP government for weakened the case.
Not a drop to share
Let me reiterate, Punjab does not have a drop of water to share. — Sunil Jakhar, Punjab BJP president
Case weakened by AAP
Punjab cannot conduct any survey as it has no water to spare. Punjab’s case is being deliberately weakened by the Aam Aadmi Party. We want to make it clear that we do not have a single drop of water for anyone and we know very well how to protect our rights. — Amarinder Singh Raja Warring, Punjab Congress chief
CM Mann has signed death warrants of Punjab’s claims on river waters and has officially expressed in the SC his readiness as the CM to build the SYL canal in Punjab. This is a great betrayal. — Sukhbir Badal, SAD president.
