HANSI-BUTANA CANAL: Punjab Information and Public Relations Minister S. Chetan Singh Jauramajra, on Wednesday, bemoaned that the Haryana government has failed to clean the siphon built upon Ghaggar under the Hansi-Butana canal on time, which resulted in massive waterlogging in villages of our side of Punjab.

While responding to media persons on his visit to various flood-affected villages, the Cabinet Minister said, the Haryana government should have cleaned this siphon well in advance, adding that if the siphon had been cleaned in time, this situation could be averted.
