Patiala : To take Congress and SAD-BJP combine head-on on the contentious issue of Sutlej Yamuna Link (SYL) Canal, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Friday laid an indefinite ‘Morcha’ at Kapoori Village and vowed that the party can go to any extent o save the interests of Punjab.State Convener of AAP, Gurpreet Singh Waraich said Captain Amarinder Singh of Congress is responsible for the SYL canal accord and is now shedding crocodile tears over the issue to get political mileage.
“If Captain is serious on protecting the water of Punjab, he should resign from Congress, instead as an MP”, Waraich said adding that Amarinder should force his boss Rahul Gandhi to clear his stand on the issue.“It is unfortunate that Gandhi has hailed the opinion of Supreme Court on SYL issue, which went against Punjab and on the other hand his party MLAs have resigned from Punjab assembly,” said Waraich.
He also took CM Parkash Singh Badal’s for his comments and said, “ Badal must clarify his stand on the role of BJP on SYL issue, as it took anti-Punjab stand in Supreme Court”.
In-charge of AAP’s affairs in Punjab, Sanjay Singh said that time is ripe that entire nation should stand by with Punjab, which is known as food bowl of the country. “If peasantry of Punjab is ruined by robbing its rights on water, entire nation will have to suffer with scarcity of food grain”, Singh added.
AAP senior leader, HS Phoolka said, “Punjab is not bound to adhere ‘opinion’ of Apex Court to give presidential reference on SYL issue and if Punjab is forced to give water to any other state, it will flow on the dead bodies of farmers and AAP leaders.
