BREAKING: Supreme Court Gives Punjab & Haryana Authority To Settle SYL-Canal Issue

NEW DELHI, India—Following a hearing on the contentious SYL-canal issue, the Supreme Court of India today gave liberty to the disputing states of Punjab and Haryana, to reach a settlement. The apex court also directed the union government of India to act as an intermediate between Punjab and Haryana to sort out the issue.

 

Appearing before the court on behalf of union government of India, the Attorney General KK Venugopal submitted that the union government was making attempts to break the standoff between two states on this issue. He further said that the SYL-canal issue was a sentimental issue for members of the public of both states.

The court has also ordered Punjab and Haryana government to stop all agitations related to the Sutlej Yamuna link canal. The court also took issue with the Punjab government for cancelling the agreements pertaining to SYL-canal construction. The Supreme Court warned the Punjab government that it can’t overturn court orders.

It is learnt that the legal counsel of Punjab government argued that several issues had come up in executing the orders of the court whereby the state was obligated to complete the construction of the canal in its territory.

But the bench replied, “You can’t overturn the orders of this court. You must comply with the decree and finish the construction first.”
