New Delhi: Senior Delhi BJP leader & President Delhi Study Group Vijay Jolly today accused Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for playing “cloak & dagger” politics on Sutlej-Yamuna Link Canal water issue.
Jolly recalled that Supreme Court had allocated Haryana 3.5 MAF water while Delhi was allotted 0.2 MAF water from Ravi Beas thru Nangal Dam to reach Delhi.
But during recent visit to Punjab on 16th March 2016, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal had stated that “he was against construction of Sutlej-Yamuna Link (SYL) canal as Punjab does not have enough water to share with other states”.
This was a political statement by AAP leader with a view to exploit popular local sentiments of Punjab farmers in view of Punjab Assembly polls in 2017 stated BJP leader Vijay Jolly.
But recent Delhi Govt. affidavit in Supreme Court runs contrary to Punjab Govt’s termination of River Sharing Agreement -1981 and Punjab Govt’s 2004 law, unilaterally terminating water sharing rights of “Haryana – Rajasthan & Delhi” on Ravi Beas river water.
This cloak & dagger tactics of Arvind Kejriwal, advocating one stance in Punjab and opposing its own stance in Supreme Court is against the water interests of Delhi stated Senior BJP Leader Vijay Jolly.
The Jal Board decision to remove its Supreme Court counsel from its panel is a belated decision to save guard the exposed two faces of AAP & its National Convener Arvind Kejriwal. As elected CM of Delhi, Kejriwal should desist from playing water politics and concentrate on providing good governance in Delhi demanded Senior BJP Leader Vijay Jolly.
