Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - Punjab -

chief minister and SAD pa­tron Parkash Singh Badal, on Fri­day, ex­pressed grat­i­tude to Prime Minister Naren­dra Modi for ap­prov­ing con­struc­tion of the Shah­pur Kandi dam on the Sut­lej river, terming it as an­other proPun­jab and pro- Pun­jabi step in the se­ries of such steps that the NDA gov­ern­ment had taken.

“The NDA gov­ern­ment has re­versed the step-moth­erly treat­ment meted out to Pun­jab by pre­vi­ous Congress gov­ern­ments by ap­prov­ing the ₹2,715 crore Shah­pur Kandi pro­ject on the heels of other pro- Pun­jabi steps like form­ing SIT to re­open cases against 1984 Sikh geno­cide per­pe­tra­tors, in­creas­ing MSP and the Kar­tarpur cor­ri­dor etc,” Badal added.
