To avert any direct face-off between the politicians of Punjab and Haryana, the Punjab Police didn’t allow supporters of the All India Sikh Students Federation and Lok Insaf Party to reach Kapuri or Shambhu barrier on Thursday.
Police stopped Lok Insaf Party leaders Balwinder Singh Bains and Simarjeet Singh Bains, and their 300 supporters at Sirhind Road grain market in Patiala, when they were on way to Kapuri. Another police team didn’t allow AISSF workers led by its chief Karnail Singh Peer Mohammad move out of Devigarh.
Nearly 80 odd members of the AISSF led by Karnail Singh Peer Mohammad, raised anti-SYL slogans at Devigarh. They were detained by the police, when they were trying to move towards SYL canal. The AISSF has already announced to challenge the Supreme Court’s order before the International Tribual at Hague
In his address, Balwinder Bains lashed out at Punjab and Haryana politicians for playing politics on the SYL Canal. “The Badals and Chautalas are playing a friendly match, while Congress and BJP leaders of both states are doing politics. Punjabis wont allow construction of the canal or water flowing out of the state,” he said.
