New Delhi [India], Nov.28 (ANI): The Punjab delegation led by Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and the Haryana delegation led by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar met with President Pranab Mukherjee on Monday at his official residence and asked him, the custodian of the Constitution, to act on his official capacity to resolve the differences over the Sutlej-Yamuna Link (SYL) canal issue after the Supreme Court’s verdict favoured Haryana.
Khattar, who was the first to visit the Rashtrapathi Bhavan, asked the President to ensure that the apex court verdict is implemented so that Haryana gets its due.
“Today we, the all party from Haryana, met the President and asked him to impellent this rule so that Haryana get its share through the SYL canal. This country has a federal structure and it runs by the Constitution. The Supreme Court bench declared that the resolution taken by the Punjab government against the SYL as void. We only want our share of water, we are not asking for Punjab’s share,” Khattar told media.
