Adampur: Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal today said the resignation by Congress Chief Amarinder Singh and his party’s MLAs on the Supreme Court’s verdict on SYL issue was just a “drama”.
“Why should we run away? This entire resignation drama has been created by the Congress party. After one month, they would anyways not remain MLAs. So why do this drama now?” he said at the inauguration of free medicines store at a Community Health Centre here.
“Irrespective of any decision, Punjab would not give a drop of water to any state,” he said.
“We will not let anyone take away even a single drop of water from Punjab,” Badal asserted, alleging that SYL issue was the sole creation of former prime minister Indira Gandhi.
The Deputy Chief Minister said, “The time when the construction of SYL canal started, Amarinder Singh had welcomed it. If he and Congress MLAs are so empathetic and sincere toward Punjab, they should first resign from the Congress, which is responsible for this issue.” If they resign from the Congress, then SAD will welcome it, he added.
