HARYANA’S SUEZ CANAL!

A waterway connecting Haryana with Gujarat was the topic of a presentation made to the administrative secretaries in Haryana last week by a marine engineer from the state. The discussion which took place in the presence of chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar left many officers nonplussed and evoked ridicule and sarcasm. The idea mooted on the lines of Suez Canal, said several officers, was quite bizarre. The marine engineer proposed that saline water from Arabian Sea can be pumped into a seaway which could be dug from Gujarat to Hisar in Haryana. It would, the presenter said, ensure effective and cheap marine transportation as well as creation of tourism destinations along the waterway. The presentation found many officers heavy eyed and disapproving. Some even suggested that the proposal be referred to the Union government and Niti Aayog. There were others who completely dismissed the idea as “outlandish” and questioned sarcastically as to why the waterway should finish at Hisar
