Haryana delegation meets Rajnath over SYL issue
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday assured a delegation of all political parties of Haryana led by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar that he will discuss the Sutlej-Yamuna Link Canal issue with the Attorney General.
"We have submitted a memorandum to the Home Minister and apprised him in detail of Haryana's position in light of Supreme Court's judgement on the SYL canal issue," Khattar told reporters after the meeting. Replying to a question, he said, "The Home Minister has assured the delegation that he will discuss the issue with the Attorney General."
Punjab and Haryana have been at loggerheads over the SYL canal issue. The Supreme Court had in a verdict last November held as unconstitutional the 2004 law passed by Punjab to terminate the SYL canal water sharing agreement with neighbouring states.
