The Aam Aadmi Party today demanded that Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal should be stopped from taking any decision on the interstate riverwaters issue which could push Punjab and the region to the brink of disaster.In a press statement, AAP leaders HS Phoolka, Kanwar Sandhu and Sukhpal Singh Khaira claimed that the SAD-BJP government no longer enjoyed peoples’ mandate and should be stopped from taking any hasty political, legislative or administrative decision on the issue.They stated that the SC decision in the form of Presidential Reference was only an “opinion” and did not warrant any action, especially at this juncture.Instead of rushing through any decision and draw political mileage, Badal should impress upon the Union Government to withhold any action on the matter. “Being an alliance partner in the NDA Government, the SAD-BJP government in Punjab will be responsible for any action on the riverwaters issue,” they said.They alleged that it was Badal who issued the first notification over the SYL on February 20, 1978, and accepted Rs 2 crore cheque as advance payment for the construction of the canal from the then Haryana Chief Minister Devi Lal.
