Commuters face tough time as INLD workers block roads

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.

Meanwhile, the party stated that they will perform the protest peacefully and will keep emergency vehicles out of the proportion they will not allow any other vehicle from Punjab to enter Haryana.

Haryana's main opposition INLD will hold protests at many points from 9 am to 3 pm on Monday, including Lalru-Chandigarh Road, Ambala-Shambhu border, Narwana- Dhanauri, Ratia-Budlahada Road (Jakhal point) in Fathehabad district and Dabwali on Haryana-Punjab border.

Seeking construction of the Sutlej-Yamuna Link (SYL) canal to get Haryana's share of water, INLD leaders and workers squatted on the roads, placed tyres and even parked their own vehicles and tractors at several places to disrupt vehicular movement in an over five-hour long protest.

Scores of INLD activists hoodwinked the Haryana Police and central security forces and blocked the NH-1 near Ambala, around 45 km from here. For commuters going to Chandigarh, the route has been diverted from Naraingarh road near Baldev Nagar flyover to Panchkula.

"Authorities of both the states (Punjab and Haryana) must remember that the decree passed by this court has to be respected and has to be executed", the bench, also comprising Justices Amitava Roy and A M Khanwilkar, said.

Senate August Recess Delayed for Two Weeks
On June 26 , the CBO said 22 million more people will be uninsured by 2026 under the Senate's Better Care Reconciliation Act. Members of the Senate Republican Conference could be briefed on the process Tuesday when they meet for a closed-door lunch.

Hundreds of security personnel from central security forces and the Haryana Police were stationed at all five places along the states' border in view of the INLD protest.

It is the second time within six months that the INLD is resorting to a political gimmick over the SYL canal issue that is set to inconvenience the public majorly.

The Akali Dal, which was opposed to the agreement, started an agitation known as Kapoori Morcha to oppose the construction of the SYL canal.

1983: Indira Gandhi had negotiated a tripartite agreement between Punjab (where Darbara Singh of the Congress was Chief Minister), Haryana (where Bhajan Lal, who had defected to the Congress from the Janata Party with a number of MLAs, was CM), and Rajasthan (where again the Congress was in power, with Shiv Charan Mathur as CM).

Reiterating that the problem could be solved only through negotiations, Amarinder said while Punjab did not want to deprive anyone of water, the "critical shortage" of water in the state prevented it from sharing this vital resource. The court also took issue with the Punjab government for cancelling the agreements pertaining to SYL-canal construction. However, Punjab, after the initial phase, stopped the work, leading to a spate of litigations.

2002 and June 2004: The supreme court directed Punjab to complete the work in its territory. The Supreme Court warned the Punjab government that it can't overturn court orders.
