Indan Lok Dak (INLD) is misleading people on SYL Canal issue,Nayab Singh Image result for sylcanal digging By S.K.Vyas CHANDIGARH, Feb 23 – Haryana Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Nayab Singh, said that the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) is misleading the people of the State on the issue of Sutlej-Yamuna Link (SYL) Canal for its vested political interests. However, the people are aware of the INLD’s attempts to vitiate the atmosphere of the State and they would not be swayed away by its designs. In a statement issued here today, the Minister said that previous governments had also misled the people on this issue. He said that the call for digging the SYL Canal given by the INLD was merely an attempt to gain popularity, which had no standing. He said that the INLD wanted to weaken the stand of Haryana in the Supreme Court. In 1977, Chaudhary Devi Lal had first put the issue on the backburner. In 1999, his son, Om Prakash Chautala, as the Chief Minister, spoke in favour of Punjab instead of properly presenting the case in favour of Haryana in the court. However, soon after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came into power in the State in 2014, Chief Minister, Manohar Lal, presented a strong case in favour of Haryana and the Supreme Court gave the decision on the Presidential Reference in favour of Haryana, he added. He said that today, Haryana was moving in the right direction to get its right through the court. This victory is the victory of the BJP and with the verdict being in favour of Haryana, there was no more conflict in the matter of the SYL Canal. Haryana has a right over the water that would flow through the SYL Canal and the State should get this water, he added. Referring to the agitation for reservation to the Jat community, he said that the Government had already withdrawn the minor cases out of those registered during the agitation. While the Chief Minister wanted to maintain peace and harmony in the State, the opposition parties were vitiating the peaceful atmosphere and hindering development works in the name of reservation. They do not have any issue to raise and do not have any standing in the State or country, he added.
