Giving this information, Punjab Chief Minister’s Advisor on Indian Affairs and Media Harcharan Bains said that the decision comes into effect immediately and necessary orders are being passed .The meeting was presided over by Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal.

Notably in last assembly session the Punjab state assembly had passed a bill to de-notify the land acquired for controversial Satluj Yamuna Link canal but the bill was never signed by the Governor of Punjab. After passing of the bill, the ruling party supporters had starting levelling the under-constructed canal using earth moving machines. Later the Supreme Court of India had installed stay on levelling of the canal. In this situation the effectiveness of Punjab cabinet’s today’s decision remains under question.
