Punjab Speaker seeks Sushma's intervention
Chandigarh, July 28 : Punjab Assembly Speaker Rana K.P. Singh has written to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj over Canada declining entry to two AAP legislators.
"On the one hand, we strive for increasing CPA activities and, on the other, our MLAs or public representatives are treated differently and humiliated," he said.
The Speaker said when the public representatives had disclosed their identity at the Ottawa Airport, the Canadian authorities must have facilitated them.
"I request you to take cognizance of this incident and take up this matter with the appropriate authorities of the Canadian government so that public representatives from our country are not subjected to such type of untoward and humiliating incidents in future."
Refused entry to Canada, both Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislators Kultar Singh Sandhwan and Amarjit Singh Sandoa returned home this week.
