Amritsar: Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee on Saturday said it has appealed to President Pranab Mukherjee to intervene in the Sutlej-Yamuna Link Canal issue.
SGPC President Kirpal Singh Badungar told news persons that the executive committee members appealed to President to save Punjab’s river waters.
The farmers in the state are already reeling under a shortage of water for cultivation. In such a situation, they cannot afford to share river waters with the neighbouring state, he said.
Badungar said the Supreme Court asking Punjab to share river waters with Haryana will hit the farmers.
SGPC’s executive committee has also asked the Centre and the Pakistan government to construct a special corridor to facilitate Sikh devotees travelling to Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan. PTI
