Parkash Singh Badal

New Delhi, The Supreme Court will hear a plea seeking criminal contempt proceedings against Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and the Deputy Chief Minister for their public pronouncements that they will not comply with the top court’s verdict on SYL.

The bench, headed by Chief Justice T.S. Thakur, said that the matter would be heard in due course as counsel Rakesh Dahiya, appearing for the petitioner, mentioned the matter for an early hearing.

Dahiya appeared for the petitioner Satbir.

The Supreme Court had ruled that Punjab has no right to unilaterally terminate the Sutlej-Yamuna Link Canal water sharing agreement with neighbouring states.
