SYL row: All party delegation to call on Prez, PM
Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday said an all-party delegation would soon call on the President and the Prime Minister to press for the early implementation of the Supreme Court's decision on the Sutlej-Yamauna Link (SYL) Canal issue.
Congratulating the people on the favourable verdict, he said the state would soon get water from the SYL Canal.
Addressing a public meeting after inaugurating development projects worth Rs 42 crore in Jhajjar district's Beri, he said the state government had made arrangements to ensure that the irrigation water reached right up to the tail-ends in southern Haryana and schemes worth Rs 2,500 crore have been approved in this regard.
He said the present BJP government in the state had made concerted efforts in the last two years in the issue, which has been pending for about 36 years, as a result of which the apex court gave its decision in the interest of Haryana.
The Chief Minister announced that a women's college would be opened at Beri. He also agreed to other demands of the locals, including those related to roads, irrigation water, education and infrastructure.
