Ludhiana District Congress Committee president Pawan Dewan said that the Punjabis interested in immigration to Canada must always adopt the legal route.
Dewan, who returned from his two week to US and Canada said he was told by the Conservative MP from Don Valley East (Ontario), Jeo Daniel that the legal route was the best and the safest.
He was honoured by Daniel during his visit to Canada.
He said, there were a lot of Punjabis settled and working in Canada. He pointed out, once people land there after completing all the procedural formalities it becomes easy for them to settle down there and find work.
Dewan said, the Canadian MP was all praise for the hardwork and dedication the Punjabi community has shown in building up Canada. He said, he found during his visit that the Punjabis were respected a lot and this was the reason that people who go from here feel at home in Canada.
The Congress leader also raised the issue of harassment with the Punjabis during the immigration and urged the MP to look into the matter.
The District Congress president said, there was great scope for cooperation in different areas between Canada and India particularly Punjab and hoped that it will benefit the people of both the countries. Among others Amardeep Aulakh, Jarnail Grewal and Gurdeep Singh Jhajj were also present on this ocassion.
