Chandigarh News: After the Supreme Court’s comment on Sutlej-Yamuna Link Canal (SYL), Aam Aadmi Party also reacted on the matter. The party said that the Punjab government’s stand on SYL is very clear. Punjab is not in a position to give even a single drop of additional water to other states.
AAP Punjab chief spokesperson Malvinder Singh Kang said that the water situation in Punjab is no longer the same as it was 50 years ago. Today Punjab itself is struggling with water issues. Recently, in the North Zone Council meeting, Chief Minister Bhagwat Mann had said that Punjab cannot give additional water to any state.
Malvinder Kang, on behalf of the party, demanded that a tribunal be constituted to know the situation of water in SYL and Punjab. The Tribunal should conduct an in-depth study on the matter as to whether Punjab is in a position to provide water to other states in the present circumstances or not.
