The INLD will gherao Parliament and hold a demonstration for the construction of the SYL Canal at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi on March 15, party leader Abhay Chautala said in Chandigarh on Monday.

Briefing newspersons after reaching here from the Patiala jail, Abhay said that INLD would take the SYL Canal fight to the logical end.

Stating that the INLD will also announce its future course of action on the issue on March 15, he said the BJP and Congress had only been doing politics on the canal, indulging in double speak and had done nothing. “Such is the indifference of the ruling BJP government in Haryana that chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar had failed to even take out time to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the ,” he said.
