Haryana CM discusses SYL canal, Hisar airport issues with PM Modi

New Delhi [India]: In his meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi here today, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar raised the burning issue of the SYL (Satluj Yamuna Link) canal and also the developments of the Hisar airport.

“The main agenda for discussion was on SYL. We are waiting for the Supreme Court’s direction on this and we want the Central government to help the state government in this matter. The Central Government has ordered the Punjab government to handover the land to the Haryana government to make the SYL there and to start the work soon. I believe that the Prime Minister will help us in this matter,” Khattar told the media here after his meeting with the Prime Minister.

The Haryana Chief Minister also raised the construction of the Hisar airport and demanded the speeding up of the work.

“The second topic we discussed was on Hisar airport. There are some developments but we want things to speed up because there has to be an airport in Haryana as well that will be benefiting the people of Haryana like Delhi and Chandigarh,” he added.

However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Chief Ministers and top party leaders tomorrow as part of his government’s focus on good governance and development.

Party President Amit Shah will also speak to the leaders, who will include 13 Chief Ministers, five Deputy Chief Ministers and several Union Ministers.

Party General Secretary Bhupender Yadav had said the Prime Minister will exhort them to focus on the development agenda with an emphasis on the poor sections of the society. (ANI)
