Earlier, hours before the judgment, Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal said he would not let anyone enter the state in the event of an adverse judgment.
“Won’t let anyone enter Punjab when somebody wants to take our lifeline. Water is life for the people of Punjab. Let any government come, be it that of the US or Iraq to take away waters from us, we won’t let them take even a drop from Punjab,” he said.
Taking a dig at the Congress, he said, “It’s a drama created by the Congress. Capt Amarinder started all this. Why are they resigning from the government at a time when their term would be over? And why are they resigning only from the government? They should resign from the party since it’s the ex-PM of their party who has got this done. It’s a drama created by the Congress.”
Sukhbir repeated that his government would not resign and keep all control in its hands.
