Sikh diaspora members of UK praise Indian democratic process

| @indiablooms | 25 May 2024, 04:18 pm

With the Lok Sabha elections going on, the Sikh community of the UK recently expressed their strong support for the democratic process of the South Asian nation.

Harpreet Singh Multani, who resides in Southall, a suburban town in West London, told ANI: "The kind of development happening in India, we have been observing while sitting in the UK. Major developments has happened in the past few years. I am not favouring any political party, but if positive work has happened, it has happened. The elections are free and fair. People are going to vote because they have witnessed development; otherwise, they will not vote. People must vote for a candidate who has been doing good work."

Baljinder Singh Rathore, a solicitor based in London, emphasised the importance of free and fair elections and the role of local representatives.

“It’s election season in India, and the elections should be free and fair, which is already happening. I hope people will vote for deserving candidates, depending on their local issues. Your local Members of Parliament (MPs) can resolve your issues, and you must vote for them,” Rathore told ANI.

 “India is fast becoming a superpower. Investors have now realized that after China, they should invest in India. A large number of Indians are now settled in countries like the UK, Canada, the USA, Australia, and even Europe. India’s development helps us to grow, and our prosperity helps to make India proud," he said.

Darshan Singh Nagi, a Sikh social worker in London, praised the economic advancements in Punjab and said: "If I come down to Punjab in the past 10 years, there used to be only one airport, but now we have six, which is a phenomenal advantage for people living in Punjab. They can travel anywhere in the world"
