Jagrup Brar, MLA's concern to implement the laws for NRI's
Vancouver, March, 19, 2007
Jagrup Brar, MLA from Surrey-Panorama Ridge in British
Columbia, Canada told our senior representative that he is
working with Indian Govt. to impove the system to attract
the NRI's investment.
He said, about four months back, I was in India
and brought positive views for more investment in India. Since
then I was endorsing my views and requesting NRIs for investment
in Punjab as well as in other parts of India.
Since last week, it happened to my own family
and also considering other NRIs problems, I am approaching
responsible authorties in India to take immediate step to
improve rules and regulations.
He further said, " We, NRIs have two hearts,
one heart is always attached to India and one heart is here
for Canada. I always request all NRIs, let we get together,
improve ourselves here as well as help our brothers and sisters
Of course, this is an emotional rather than
a rational argument. This kind of reasoning cannot be accepted
forever. Poverty should not be a reason for lawlessness,
for anarchy. Citizens, rich or poor, must respect
The law enforcers must implement the laws in order to maintain
order in society.
It is no fault of anybody if more poor people are involved
in these kind of activities. The criminally inclined will
engage in crime, whether they are rich or poor.
What is important is for the enforcers to sincerely and
diligently enforce the law whoever gets hurt, without fear
or favor. In the maintenance of law and order, the
name of the game is law enforcement.
