Chandigarh: The Haryana Assembly today unanimously passed a resolution condemning Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal’s recent statement that Punjab and Punjabis will not accept any verdict against the state’s interest on river waters.
The resolution was moved by Haryana’s Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ram Bilas Sharma in the state Assembly and passed by the House, which met here today as part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations of Haryana’s formation.
The Assembly’s main opposition INLD had sought that the resolution condemning Punjab Chief Minister’s statement on river water issue be brought in the House. Senior Congress leader and former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda seconded the demand.
On Tuesday, Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal had said Punjab or Punjabis will not accept any verdict against the state’s interest on river waters and are ready to make any sacrifice to safeguard their legitimate share on it.
Badal said this while addressing the public gathering in Amritsar on November 1 on the occasion of 50th year of Punjabi Suba celebrations, in which Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and BJP president Amit Shah, were also present. PTI
