Ask SC to settle riparian question first, SAD tells govt at all party meet

Chandigarh, Jan 23 (UNI) The Shiromani Akali Dal on Thursday reiterated its demand that nothing short of the Riparian Principle would be acceptable as the basis for a solution to the issue of waters of all three Punjab Rivers, the Ravi, the Satluj and the Beas. The party also demanded the deletion of the Clause 5 of the Punjab Termination of Agreements Act 2004 as according to the party, it violates the Riparian Principle.
Addressing media persons after the All Party Meeting convened by the Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, the SAD senior leader Prof Prem Singh Chandumajra said, “SAD has made supreme sacrifices and launched major Morchas to secure Punjab’s right on the waters of its rivers on the basis of the Riparian Principle under which non-Riparian State like Rajasthan and Haryana had no right on even a single drop from the waters from the Punjab Rivers. It is unfortunate that in the past, some parties, notably the Congress opposed the SAD on the issue. But we feel vindicated that today finally, all political parties have accepted the correctness and constitutional and legal soundness of the Akali demand."
The SAD delegation comprised senior Senior Vice President, Balwinder Singh Bhunder, Prof Prem Singh Chandumajra and Mahesh Inder Singh Grewal.

“Implementation of the programme – guaranteeing financial assistance from the period before birth to demise – has been recommenced,” the veteran leader was officially quoted as saying while electronically transferring ex gratia of Rs 80 crore to the accounts of 3,700 beneficiaries during a function at the city-based Minto Hall.
