After its demonstration at Jantar Mantar, the Indian Lok Dal (INLD) protests over controversial Sutlej-Yamuna Link (SYL) issue will continue to march towards the Parliament.

INLD's two Members of Parliament, 19 legislators and workers will gather from across the state, led by senior party leader Abhay Singh Chautala, to seek Prime Minister Modi's intervention into the matter.

The INLD has also planned to submit resolutions passed by various Khaps (community council) and Panchayats (village councils) on the SYL canal water issue.

More than 90 INLD leaders including Chautala were arrested by the police on February 23 while trying to enter the state for digging up the controversial portion of the SYL canal falling in Patiala district.

After the arrest, the INLD leaders were sent to judicial custody till February 27 by a Rajpura and immediately after their release from Patiala jail, they announced to 'gherao' the Parliament.
