Phagwara, Amit Ohri. Due to the unpleasant atmosphere created between Canada and India immediately after the G-20 summit held in India, the market of various types of discussions and rumors is hot across the country. This issue has become a topic of serious discussion in Punjab, as Punjab is the only state in the country with the largest number of young boys and girls going to study and settle in Canada on study visa.
Mini Punjab in Canada
The trend of Punjabis going to Canada started two and a half decades ago and the enthusiasm towards it is increasing every year. Every year more than two lakh students from the country go to Canada to study. Of these, about 45 percent are Punjabis. There are many provinces in Canada which have become mini Punjab. In such a situation, Punjabis keep a special eye on any event or activity happening in Canada. Now, due to the tense environment in Canada and India, this issue has become a topic of discussion.
This matter has become even more serious with the decision of the Indian Ministry of External Affairs to ban the visas of Canadian citizens. Those whose children have migrated to Canada and those who are planning to send their children to Canada, want to know every aspect. The issue was discussed with the people of the IELTS centers and the city. He says that this tension will reduce in a few days.
Enthusiasm of students remains intact: Avtar Mand
Avtar Mand, MD of the famous King Travel Hub in Phagwara, said that the unpleasant situation that has arisen between India and Canada is not going to last long. Both countries understand that they are highly dependent on each other for trade, while millions of children from India are living in Canada. Canada knows that students from India and especially Punjab have a big role in strengthening its economy. The tension between both the countries will reduce.
