Why this sudden obsession with Rajiv Gandhi, @officeofssbadal ? Could be because you’re jealous of him? After all, he became Prime Minister at the age of 40 and you haven’t even become Chief Minister at 57! That could explain your manic delusions vis-a-vis Rajiv.

Had visited Ropar today to assess the damage and interact with families who have been impacted. I assure everyone that we are committed to restoring normalcy in flood-hit regions at the earliest and my government will take all possible measures for the same.

Have announced ₹100 cr for emergency relief & rehabilitation measures for flood-hit areas in the State. Special Girdawari will be conducted as soon as water-level recedes to ensure due compensation to farmers. Have asked DCs to extend all necessary help to the affected families.

Media is the 4th pillar of democracy & has played a key role in nation-building. As a small token of gratitude, I have decided to extend benefits of #SarbatBimaYojna to all accredited journalists or yellow cardholders. The requisite premium will be borne by the state govt.

Chaudhary Devi Lal confirmed in the Haryana Assembly in Mar 1978 that your father had issued the notification regarding land acquisition for SYL & later accepted a cheque of ₹1 crore. You have no right to speak on SYL. Leave it to me & I'll ensure Punjab's water stays in Punjab

Quoted@capt_amarinder

Ironic to see @officeofssbadal advising me on protecting Punjab's interests. It was I who brought in 'The Punjab Termination of Agreements Act, 2004', abrogating the inter-state agreement to protect Punjab. Let me not say more. Unlike you Punjab is always first for me.

There is no need for Punjab govt to participate in any meeting on the Sutlej Yamuna Link (SYL) canal. I warn Pb CM @capt_amarinder not to succumb to any pressure & bargain away the river waters of Punjab. The SAD stand is clear: Pb doesn't hv even a single drop of water to spare.

Remembering #AtalBihariVajpayee ji on his first death anniversary. My tributes to a great statesman, a legendary politician & an outstanding parliamentarian. I'll always treasure the memories from the Dakala bypolls of 1970, when he campaigned for me in my first election.
