Chandigarh : Senior Haryana BJP leader and former minister Ram Bilas Sharma on Monday asked Punjab to “shed its stubbornness” on the Sutlej Yamuna Link (SYL) canal issue and pave the way for the canal’s construction in letter and spirit on the Supreme Court directions. The apex court has given fresh directions in the SYL matter and asked the Punjab government to complete the construction of the canal. “The Punjab government should follow the directions of the Supreme Court and stop creating hurdles in the construction of the SYL canal,” he said. “The stand Punjab chief minister Bhagwant Mann has taken on the SYL issue is a contempt of court,” Sharma said.
