Chandigarh, July 12, 2017: H.S.Phoolka, senior advocate Supreme Court and MLA Dakha has said that Captain Amrinder should take up the matter of Sharda Yamuna Link canal with the Prime Minister of India. Mr. Phoolka said that project of Sharda Yamuna Link canal, which is already approved by the previous Indian Governments, should be executed and water to Haryana should be given from that canal. Phoolka asked why requirement of Haryana is not being met from Sharda Yamuna Link canal. World over, water is taken from surplus water basin and not from deficient water source, Phoolka said. Punjab is a water deficient state and Sharda Basin is a water surplus state. The requirement of Haryana can be easily met from that basin.
Rather, Captain and Badal should jointly explain to the Prime Minister that Present SYL agreement was a revenge of India Gandhi on Punjab and present Indian Government should do justice with Punjab.
Speaker, Punjab Vidhan Sabha today accepted the resignation Of H.S. Phoolka from the post of Leader of Opposition
