The artists of Haryana have expressed their displeasure over this song released 26 days after the murder of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala. Protesting against the words of not giving SYL ka water to Haryana, Haryanvi artist Gajendra Phogat has announced to make a new song in the cut of this song.
At the same time, KD said that this song should not have been released by Kin and Moosewala’s team. Such songs spoil the brotherhood of both the states. The people of the state are also opposing the song on social media. However, international boxer Vijender Singh says that due to confusion people are not able to understand the lyrics of the song properly. Vijender says that only those people who used to see terrorism among farmers are jealous of the song.
The dispute over the water of SYL (Satluj-Yamuna Link Canal) had started at the time of the formation of Haryana State by separating it from Punjab. In 1979, Haryana approached the Supreme Court over Punjab’s refusal to build SYL. In 2002, the Supreme Court directed Punjab to get the SYL constructed or handed over to the work center within a year.
