Canadian MP Visits India To Hear Immigration Grievances

Jinny Jogindera Sims, an Indian-born Canadian Member of Parliament, is currently away on a trip to India in a bid to find out the core grievances of Indian residents about problems they face while applying for the Canadian visa.
After paying obeisance at Golden Temple in the Indian state of Punjab, the Indian-Canadian parliamentarian Tuesday told reporters that she was all set to visit the Canadian consulates in Punjab and in India's capital city of Delhi to have a first-hand-information about the problems faced by the residents while opting for the Canadian visas.
Saying that she is an active advocate of Non-Resident Indians' issues in Canada, the Canadian Parliamentarian hinted that she always has a special place for India in her heart.
"Definitely, I always look to pay back to India where I was born. This is the reason that I take up NRIs' issues in Canada," said Jinny Jogindera Sims.
Applauding the Punjabis in Canada for playing vital roles in the development of the country, the Canadian MP urged the Indian youth to adopt legitimate ways to travel abroad.
The MP warned the Indian youth not to fall in the trap of dubious travel agents.
The MP said that she was working to solve all the South Asian immigration problems back in Canada apart from the issues of Non-Resident Indians.
"My constituency Newton North Delta has considerable population from the South Asian region. My stress is always to solve their issues, especially the immigration problems they face," the Hindustan Times quoted the MP as saying.
Sims got elected to the House of Commons in 2011.
