UK Punjab NRI MLA & Candian NRI Politicians hold conference
For NRIs: The Real NRI Conference
Chandigarh, Dec. 22, 2008
Can one really expect a government sponsored or associated NRI
samellan to be representative?
Why is it that previous NRI conferences have been sweet talking
shops and colorful photo opportunities?
Have you ever heard words critical of government action or the gut
– wrenching pleas of an aggrieved NRI?
The reality is that the January 2008 samellan held in Jalandhar
and Chandigarh was nothing more than a gloss over. That is why this
conference is being held on 26 December 2008 at Chandigarh to allow
visiting Legislators and NRIs the freedom and opportunity to express
With more than 3 Lakh Punjabi’s living outside India we cannot
simply ignore their views.
Ministers need to understand that NRIs do not just make great hosts
overseas, they can also play substantial role in the development
This conference will highlight the issues that need to be addressed
to make Punjab a more welcome destination for Punjabi NRIs.
Speeches will include:
Sukh Dhaliwal MP, Newton North Delta, B.C Canada.
Kuldip S. Kular MPP, Bramalea Gore Malton, Ontario, Canada.
Vic Dhillon MPP, Brampton West, Ontario, Canada.
UK NRI Jasbir Singh Khangura (Jassi), 44, who has sacrifice his
British citizenship to return to his Punjab roots and has decided
to try his luck in the field of politics
Oxford-educated hotelier Jasbir Singh Khangura approved that only
NRIs can change the system if they continue. Qila Raipur was always
belong to Akali Dal. No Congress candidate ever won this seat.
In this constituency, people are very educated and this time they
felt that only NRI can bring some changes and voted to Jasbir Singh
Khangura as Congress candidate
A willingness to ignore ethical norms may be necessary for success
in politics; but it's not in the blood of NRIs. One problem is always
there, the people of the India have always loved their corrupt politicians,
as long as they deliver. That's the reality that someone like NRI
has to face. NRI always say, "I just try to do the best I can,
speak openly about what I believe in."
