Swaraj steps in, AAP duo can visit Canada
Chandigarh, October 23
Aam Aadmi Party MLAs Kultar Singh Sandhwan and Amarjit Singh Sandoa, who were denied entry to Canada at Ottawa Airport on July 21, are now eligible to enter Canada anytime.
The development has come to light with the second letter of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to Vidhan Sabha Speaker Rana KP Singh.
Expressing serious concern over the discourteous treatment to the AAP MLAs at the Canadian airport, Speaker Rana KP Singh had written to the External Affairs Minister for an action in the matter on July 25.
In the letter to the Speaker, the Union minister said the Indian High Commission in Ottawa had strongly raised the matter with the Canadian Government, seeking the circumstances and reasons for this deplorable action by the Canadian immigration authorities.
She wrote, “I have been informed that the Canadian Border Services Agency has conveyed to our Mission in Ottawa that due to privacy legislation they are unable to provide further details in the matter. However, they have also conveyed that Kultar Singh and Amarjit Singh are eligible to visit Canada, if they choose to do so, at any future time.”
