The Tribune – Chief Minister hails Centre’s move on SYL meet

Chandigarh, 10 April 2017. Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh today welcomed the Centre’s decision to convene a meeting of Punjab and Haryana on April 20 to resolve the contentious SYL issue.

He said the question of sharing Punjab river waters with other states did not arise since the state did not have surplus water.

The Chief Minister underlined the need for a fresh assessment of the quantum of riverwaters available with Punjab before taking a decision in the SYL matter.

“To allow the construction of the SYL canal before ascertaining the water availability will amount to putting the cart before the horse,” Captain Amarinder said. (TNS)
