Addressing the massive public gathering on the momentous occasion of 50th year of Punjabi Suba celebrations, the Chief Minister said that the successive Congress governments at the centre have subjected our state and its people to sheer exploitation by denying its rightful share in river waters. Without mincing any words, Mr. Badal, while soliciting the personal attention of Union Finance Minister Mr. Arun Jaitley and National BJP President Mr. Amit Shah, categorically stated that now the people were making sarcastic remarks for not getting these territorial issues resolved through the intervention of NDA government at the centre, in which Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) was an ally. He said that the inter-state issues including denial of capital to Punjab, transfer of Punjabi speaking areas and resolving river water issues within the ambit internationally accepted Riperian Principle were hanging in fire since long due to apathetic attitude of the Congress governments at centre.
