Claiming that Haryana was facing water scarcity and the supply of its share to Delhi would further aggravate it, Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) president Kuldeep Bishnoi has accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of doing vote politics to gain power in Delhi.
"They are going to do it at the cost of the interests of Haryana farmers. It is in view of the coming assembly elections in Delhi that the BJP has decided to divert water of Haryana," the HJC leader claimed in a press release issued here on Sunday, adding: "The farmers of Haryana are restive over the short supply of canal water for their crops."
He said the BJP had failed to fulfil its tall election promises to the people of Haryana and the chief minister was more worried about Delhi now to see his party win over there.
"The real face of the BJP has started emerging. Why is it silent on the SYL (Sutlej Yamuna Link canal) water now when it is in a position to fulfil its promise and the case is not sub judice? The party in power should clarify its stand on the SYL, because be it the issue of water or power, we'll not tolerate injustice to Haryana," he stated.
