FINAL ASSAULT (Documentary): Save Punjab's Waters...

Final Assault is a controversial and fact-driven documentary about the water crisis in Punjab. Policies have been put in place for the past several decades that inhibit Punjab’s ability to use its’ natural resources for state revenue. Final Assault looks at the bias of the Indian government towards the Punjab state and its’ citizens through accounts from former military officers, historians, and professors. Since India gained independence from Britain in 1947, Punjab has been unsuccessful in getting their deserved freedom. Government planned military operations such as the attack on Sri Harmandir Sahib, named by the military as 'Operation Blue Star', and the Sikh Genocides in 1984 are a few examples of this oppression. Director Sukhdeep Singh aims to educate the public on the ongoing crisis, which if left neglected will result in the final assault for Punjab.
