New Delhi, April 21

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh met Water Resources Ministrt Uma Bharti on Friday to discuss the deadlock between the state and its neighbour Haryana over the Sultej-Yamuna Link Canal.

The chief minister is believed to have told Bharti that Punjab could not share it waters with Haryana because of a fall in water levels in its rivers and the resultant water shortage in the state.

The meeting is believed to have lasted for some 15 minutes.

The meeting comes a day after Singh met chief secretaries of Punjab and Haryana over the tussle.
