After two days NRI Punjabi Sammelan on January 05 and 06, minister for overseas Indian affairs Vayalar Ravi will inaugurate another high-profile event on Jan 14 " Indian Diaspora: Migration and Development" and opportunity to consolidate and review the proposals emerging out the two-day NRI Sammelan.

  • It is very clear that the focus would be on Punjab, which is in urgent need of a new outlook to meet the expectations of NRIs.
  • There would be a discussion on Punjab government's policies and procedures towards building a relationship with NRIs.

Vijender Jain, the chief justice of Punjab and Haryana High Court and other speakers will discuss:

  • Issues like illegal migration, NRI marriages, forced marriages, proxy marriages, custody of children and senior citizens.
  • Can the NRI be a strategic asset in the economic and social prosperity of Punjab?

Whatever we call: complete inactivity or stagnation of state's finances and the chief minister going full steam in inviting FDI for infrastructure development.

The debate is likely to suggest ways and means to come out of the situation
