Ludhiana, April 26, 2016: Indian Overseas Congress president Amarpreet Aulakh meets Captain Amarinder Singh at Chicago along with Pawan Dewan former District Congress president & senior Congress leader from Punjab. Aulakh discussed the problems faced by NRIs from Canada during their visit to Punjab.
Lashing down heavily at Badals, Aulakh said that so far the Badals’ led government is one of the worst government ever in the history of Punjab. This Akali-BJP Government is responsible for the rising crime, drug mafia in Punjab. He said that it hurts whenever the NRI's visits Punjab as the Badals have ruined the lives of youths of Punjab. The law and order situation of Punjab is deteriorating day by day. Land mafia is capturing the properties of NRIs.
Aulakh also raised the flights issue with Captain Singh. He said that despite the inauguration of Chandigarh international airport till date there's no movement of flights. Neither there is any direct flight from Amritsar Rajasansi airport to Canada. The NRIs have to arrive at IGI Airport New Delhi and from there it took 8-10 hours to reach Jalandhar and other parts of Punjab. He asked captain to help in starting international flights from Chandigarh and Amritsar, when he will form the next government in Punjab. Aulakh hails Captain's decision to continue his visit to Canada and Captain's interaction with NRIs of Canada through skype is also a welcomed step.
Captain Amarinder Singh said that he is very well aware of the problems faced by NRI during their visit to Punjab. And he is here only to know them deeply whatever the problems are faced by them. Captain ensues that when the Congress will form the Government in Punjab in 2017 the problems faced by NRIs would be solved on priority. Aulakh thanks Captain Singh for his concern towards NRIs and said that we the NRIs are very much sure that under your dynamic leadership Punjab would become the no. 1 state of India.
