    Chandigarh March 20:  Haryana Chief Minister Mr Manohar Lal said that  Haryana would give Delhi its share of water. However, he made it clear that it is not practical to provide water to Delhi by ignoring the interests of farmers and citizens of Haryana.           The Chief Minister was speaking in the meeting of Upper Yamuna Review Committee held under the Chairmanship of Union Minister for Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation Sushri Uma Bharati at New Delhi today.           He said that keeping in view the increasing population of Delhi, more water would be required in future but it is not justifiable to expect only from Haryana  to meet the water demand of Delhi. All states should contribute in supply of water to Delhi, he added.           The Chief Minister said that the farmers of Yamunanagar and Karnal districts got information that Uttar Pradesh is constructing Tabar Dam which would breach the banks of Yamuna in Haryana. The construction of dam was not under rules and hence its construction should be banned. It was decided in the meeting that a meeting of Chief Secretaries of both the states would be convened and till then UP government should stop the construction of this dam. He said that the Central Government should urged the Supreme Court for early hearing in the SYL case.           In reference to the construction of SYL, the Chief Minister said that it was the life line of Haryana. He urged the Central Government for Presidential Reference for this case which has been lying pending for the last ten years.  He said that Haryana should be given pending amount of  Rs 106 crore  for the construction of canal from Munak to Delhi by Delhi Government. Apart from this, Delhi Government should give pending amount of Rs 87.3 crore for the maintenance of part of Haryana canal in Delhi. Also, the remaining abyana of Rs 2.3 crore of Haryana on Delhi farmers should also be paid immediately.           It was also decided in the meeting to constitute a joint monitoring committee for regulation and monitoring of inter- state rivers and decision of these matters should not be left on the States. The Chief Minister invited the Delhi Chief Minister Mr Arvind Kejriwal to visit Haryana. On which he gave his consent to visit Haryana in the first week of April.          Irrigation Minister Haryana Mr O.P.
