Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has thanked the Supreme Court for its verdict on the SYL Canal issue and appealed to Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh to take immediate steps to ensure construction of the SYL Canal on Punjab territory so that the farmers of both states could benefit.
Manohar Lal said, “I thank the Honorable Supreme Court for its orders on the SYL Canal issue. The apex court has done justice. I appeal to the Punjab Chief Minister, Capt Amarinder Singh ji, for his co-operation in construction of the SYL Canal on Punjab territory for the benefit of farmers in both states”.
The Chief Minister expressed the hope that the Punjab Chief Minister would take immediate steps to honour the orders of the Supreme Court and get the needful done.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday endorsed the Centre's efforts to resolve the crisis between the two neighbouring States over the Satluj-Yamuna Link (SYL) canal.
