Adampur (Jalandhar): Commenting on the Satluj Yamuna Link (SYL) canal issue, Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal on Thursday said, “Why should we run away? This entire resignation drama has been created by the Congress. Ask them that after one month, they would not remain MLAs anyways, so why do this drama now?”
The Deputy CM emphasised that irrespective of any decision, SAD would not let anyone take away even a single drop of water from Punjab.
Talking to the media, the Deputy CM said that the SYL issue was the sole creation of the-then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. The Deputy CM said that at the time, when the construction of SYL canal started, Captain Amarinder Singh had welcomed it.
“If Captain Amarinder Singh as well as all Congress MLAs were so empathetic and sincere towards Punjab, they should first resign from the Congress, which is responsible for this issue. If the Congress MLAs would resign, then SAD will welcome it,” he added.
