Stop humiliating the NRIs currently in Punjab, with ‘albatross around their neck’: Bir Devinder Singh




Bir Devinder Singh, former Deputy Speaker, Punjab Vidhan Sabha, condemned the Punjab government for mortifying ignominiously the Non-Resident Indians (NRIs), who are on their visit to home State, Punjab since January 2020 or even before. 

In a statement issued today, he said that the kind of contemptible language is being used by Punjab Ministers for all the NRIs, currently in Punjab for different personal reasons, apparently sounds wicked and disgraceful. The surveillances of the NRIs by the Sarpanches and Panches of the Gram Panchayats in Punjab would prove counterproductive and certainly not a nice thing to do. 

Bir Devinder Singh cautioned that such incidents would generate such a perverse atmosphere of long time cussedness and sow the seeds of inextinguishable fire of bitterness and animosity that would completely obliterate the long term relationship with the Punjabi Diaspora, world over.  Therefore,   first of all, Capt. Amarinder Singh himself should refrain mentioning all the NRIs on visit to Punjab, as the suspect cases of Covid-19 and must also rein in and discipline his loud and badmouth Ministers who are routinely using derogatory expressions for the visiting NRIs.

We must bear in our mind that the visiting NRI’s are not criminals, and have not gone in to hiding intentionally, after committing some heinous crimes. Corona Virus is a Global phenomenon, therefore it is naïve to arrogantly perceive, as if our NRI brethrens are here on a ‘mission’ to spread deadly virus to their own people, as it’s paradoxically being perceived and made out to perpetuate, said Bir Devinder Singh.

He mentioned that in view of the catastrophic situation, all precautionary measures must be adhered to, by mapping the each visiting NRI or non-NRI but to put albatross around their neck is just an atrocious act. Therefore it is expected from all the  Punjab Ministers including their ‘Super Boss’ and top bureaucrats; that  while choosing the words to codify norms and statements of objects, the sublime sense of watchful expression must not lose sight of human dignity,  particularly, while referring to our guest NRIs who are on the visit to Punjab. 

‘I would beseech the State Government that while dealing with the most difficult and trying times; nothing should be done, advertently or inadvertently, that causes the unfathomable hurt to the Non-Resident-Indians as they continue to be inseparable parts of our existence’, concluded BIr Devinder Singh.
