Haryana to go to court

By Our Special Correspondent

CHANDIGARH, JULY 12. The Haryana Chief Minister, Om Prakash Chautala, said here today that his Government would go to the Supreme Court to get its verdict implemented in the Sutlej-Yamuna Link Canal imbroglio.

Reacting to the passing of the Punjab Termination of Agreements Bill, 2004 by the Punjab Assembly, Mr. Chautala reiterated what he said early in the day while addressing a meet-the-press at the Press Club here.

Quoting from the scriptures, Mr. Chautala said: ``forgive them for they know not what they are doing.''

It was shocking that the Congress regime in Punjab was trying to annul an agreement brokered by the then Congress Government at the Centre, headed by Indira Gandhi, between the Congress Governments of Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan on December 31, 1981, Mr. Chautala said.

If the Bill becomes an Act, it would lead the country into a Constitutional crisis of an unprecedented scale. People would not fail to foresee the disastrous consequences of the assumption of sovereignty by Punjab in Para-2 of the preamble of the Bill.
