The singer, actor, rapper and politician Sidhu Musewala has always been controversial. Sometimes because of his antics and sometimes because of his songs. 26 days after his death, Musewala is back in the headlines. This time the reason is his new song on video of him, which has been released on Sidhu Musewala’s YouTube channel. This four minute nine second song is about the Sutlej Yamuna Link channel dispute between Punjab-Haryana. Alongside this, footage of the violence that took place at the Red Fort in Delhi during the peasant movement has also been shown. The song starts with the statement of the head of Haryana Aam Aadmi Party, Sushil Gupta, in which he promises the people that if his party’s government is formed in Haryana as Punjab in 2024, then it will defeat Haryana. canal water
In Sidhu Moosewala’s new video song, an attempt has been made to give the message that the people of Punjab have a right to the water. He will never give up his right. He will not give a drop of water to anyone. Punjabis know how to stand up for their rights. For this, the violence that took place in the Red Fort of Delhi during the peasant movement has been mentioned. Through this, an attempt has been made to show that Punjabis can do their best to protect their rights. Not only this, it has also been said to free people housed in different jails during different movements. In this, many peasant leaders were imprisoned even during the peasant movement. Not only this, there has also been a threat that if someone does wrong to the Punjabis, he will have to face the consequences. For this, former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, General Dyer, etc. have been mentioned.
Why is Indira Gandhi mentioned in Sidhu Musewala’s song?
Former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi has a deep association with Sutlej Yamuna Link Canal (SYL). In fact, on April 8, 1982, Indira Gandhi laid the foundation stone for the SYL canal in the village of Kapuri in Punjab. Kapuri is the last town in Punjab, after which the Haryana border begins. This channel became a matter of dispute between Punjab and Haryana. Terrorism was also raging in Punjab at the time. Indira Gandhi had led the operation to combat the extremists. Two years later, he was assassinated on October 31, 1984. That’s why Moosewala has mentioned it in his song. General Dyer has been cited for the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, who was assassinated by Sardar Udham Singh in London. Indeed, on April 13, 1919, Dyer opened fire on the people gathered at Jallianwala Bagh in Punjab, killing hundreds.
What is the SYL controversy, which is mentioned in the song?
The song title of Sidhu Moosewala’s video is SYL. SYL stands for Sutlej Yamuna Link Channel. This dispute started when Haryana was separated from Punjab as a new state. After the separation of Haryana in the year 1966, the Government of India divided the Punjab water in half. A connecting channel was needed to obtain this water. In 1976, Haryana gave Punjab one crore of rupees for its construction. But later, the then Punjab government began to doubt. Following this, in the year 1981, the then Punjab Chief Minister Giani Zail Singh, Haryana Chief Minister Bhajan Lal and Rajasthan Chief Minister Shivcharan Mathur signed an agreement to build the SYL canal in the presence of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. After this, a 121 km long canal was built, but to date, Haryana has not been able to get water from this canal.
