Ludhiana: 13 January 2017: (Punjab Screen Bureau):
Member Parliament of Calgary Constituency of Canada Darshan Singh Kang today expressed serious concern over the alarming social issues of the India especially Punjab, which are eating into the vitals of society and rendering a setback to its all round development. Kang was in the city to address a gathering organised by Sai Mian Meer Foundation. Mr Kang asked the people of Punjab to raise the alarming issues like drugs, female foeticide and pollution with those
whom they have voted to power and hence owe responsibility towards them. While sharing the task performed by the political parties of Canada, Kang tried to bring home the point that the contestants for Punjab Vidhan Sabha, should assume cudgels and pledge to cleanse Punjab of
all sorts of social evils which are ruining many a lives and destroying many others in the process. “Land of Baba Nanak who said ‘so keyo manda akhiye, jitt jamme rajaan’ should be purged of all such evils,” Kang asserted. He expressed the need to empower women with education, which, he said, “is the only tool to fight any atrocity that comes her way.” Apart from this, he stressed on judicious use of water as he said, "it is the elixir of life,"
Director, Youth Welfare Department, Panjab University Chandigarh Dr. Nirmal Jaura, introduced the Canadian MP and traced his struggle right from his childhood days in his native village Nathuwala Jadeed in Moga District.
Kang was especially honoured by the Chairman of Sai Mian Meer Foundation Mr Hardial Singh Aman.
