Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday said that formation of a Congress government in Punjab will not have any impact on the Sutlej-Yamuna Link (SYL) Canal issue.

“The Supreme Court has already announced its verdict on SYL in Haryana’s favour and it will definitely get its share of river waters,” Khattar said while talking to mediapersons here.

He said the BJP’s landslide victory in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections is the result of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s development agenda.

“The mandate proves that people have supported Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s development agenda under the ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’ policy and rejected the allegations of the opposition parties,” Khattar said.

“Even the leaders of opposition parties are now saying that they should make preparations for the 2024 general elections instead of 2019. But I don’t think that they could do anything in 2024 as well,” he added while referring to former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah’s advice to the opposition parties after the election results on Saturday.

KHATTAR, HOODA SHARE DAIS

The ‘Virat Sarvdharam Sangam’ organised at the a Jain Temple here Khattar and former chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on one stage. The organisers honoured both Khattar and Hooda during the programme. The CM said such programmes help to bring people closer.
