"My government intends to do its maximum to protect the legitimate rights of the state in river water sharing. All out efforts will be made for early completion of the Sutlej-Yamuna-Link-Canal, the lifeline of agriculture in the state," he said.
    
"Similarly, renewed efforts would also be made to remove all legal hurdles in the commissioning of the Hansi-Butana-Link-Canal at the earliest," the Governor added.
    
He said the state government would take all necessary steps to amicably defend Haryana's other legitimate rights, including pending inter-state issues with all neighbouring states.
    
The issues, including transfer of Hindi speaking areas to Haryana from Punjab and completion of the SYL canal to bring Haryana's share of Ravi-Beas water from Punjab, have remained pending in the past.
