Ahmedgarh, February 19
Brampton (Canada) MP Ruby Sahota, a senior member of a delegation led by Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, said the main aim of the ensuing visit was to strengthen bonds among people of the two countries, besides promoting cultural exchange.
Ruby was talking to The Tribune after the concluding session of the felicitation function held by organisations at MGMN Senior Secondary School, here today.
“We are glad that our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had fixed top priority for strengthening ties among citizens of both countries having multiracial population,” said Sahota maintaining that she, like other members of the delegation, was impressed with the communal harmony, socialisation and peace-loving nature of Indians, especially Punjabis. Earlier, addressing the gathering of office-bearers and activists of various constitutional, social and religious organisations, Sahota cautioned that Punjabi youths should not fall prey to sinister designs of fraudulent travel agents. She also warned against organising marriages in haste in expectation of greener pastures abroad.
Narrating incidents from her own life, Ruby Sahota maintained that persistent and intensive labour was the only key to success at levels in Canada and other western countries. Speakers, including SAD secretary general and MP Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, former Speaker Punjab Vidhan Sabha Dr Charanjit Singh Atwal, Municipal Council president Suraj Mohammad, highlighted various activities being undertaken by Ruby Sahota in service of Punjabis settled in Brampton and other parts of Canada.
Office-bearers of around three dozen social organisations, panchayats and civic bodies presented mementoes to Ruby and her associates on the occasion. Harbans Singh Jandali, Ruby’s father and an NRI from Jandali village, passed a vote of thanks.
