SAD NOT TO ALLOW AN INCH OF CHANDIGARH TO BE TRANSFERRED TO HARYANA


Chandigarh - The Shiromani Akali Dal today accused the Aam Aadmi Party govt in Punjab of hobnobbing with the center and the Haryana governments to dilute and weaken Punjab’s legitimate and constitutionally acknowledged claim on its capital, Chandigarh. Firmly opposing the center’s reported move for transferring or swapping a piece of land in the City with Haryana for allowing the latter to construct its Legislature here, the party said , “Not an inch of land from Chandigarh would be allowed to be transferred to or swapped with Harayna as the entire Capital belongs inalienably to Punjab. This has been acknowledged by both houses of the Parliament as well as by successive governments at the center. Even Haryana is committed through the Punjab Accord to the transfer of the City to Punjab.” This was stated by senior Akali leader Prof Prem Singh Chandumajra at a well attended press conference at the party headquarters here this evening. Senior Akali leaders Dr Daljeet Singh Cheema, S Hira Singh Gabria and S Harcharan Singh Bains were also present at the press conference held after a meeting of the senior party leaders which was presided over by the party president Sukhbir Singh Badal . In this meeting a major decision was taken that a high level delegation of the party led by Party president Sukhbir Singh Badal will meet the governor of Punjab to appeal to him to reject the demand put forward by Haryana govt for allotment of 10 acres of land for the construction of Haryana Vidhansabha building in Chandigarh.

The meeting also set up a two member committee comprising S MaheshInder Singh Grewal & Dr Daljit Singh Cheema to consult Eminent lawyers for taking legal action on this issue .
