    In a major embarrassment for the Delhi BJP, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar refused to release water into the Munak canal and provide relief to Delhi’s water woes. Khattar said he could only release water if it can be arranged from other states like Punjab, Uttarakhand or Himachal Pradesh.

    Khattar’s statement is expected to create trouble for the BJP in Delhi with polls around the corner. The party was banking on his support to address the issue of water shortage, which is also part of its manifesto.

    “I have no water resource. I can only release water supplied by Himachal Pradesh or Uttarakhand. Haryana used to get water from Rajasthan but even that has stopped. Like Delhi, NCR areas like Faridabad are also growing and need water. We will be meeting Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu on December 1 on this issue,” Khattar said at a function organised by the Delhi BJP to felicitate him.

    Many senior leaders, who expected Khattar to make a positive announcement regarding Munak canal, believe that if there was to be no announcement, then the event should not have been planned.

    Khattar, however, gave some assurance on solving Delhi’s traffic woes. He said work on the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway will be fast-tracked.

    Khattar is proving to be an odd fish.

    His handling of that God man was pathetic.

    Has he released any details of the water being released to his State from others and why he is unable to provide water to other areas?
