Chandigarh, December 3
The number of NRI courts in Punjab should be increased to ensure timely delivery of justice, said Satnam Singh Chahal, the executive director of North-American Punjabi Association (NAPA), on Saturday.
He said the Punjabi diaspora is excited about the NRI meetings in Jalandhar, Mohali, Ludhiana, Moga and Amritsar announced by the Punjab government to address their problems.
“This is the first time in the state that a government is trying to solve issues and concerns of the Punjabi diaspora at their doorstep. We will make sure that every participant is treated fairly and get his/her complaints addressed,” Chahal said.
He said gang war is a cause of concern for the Punjabi diaspora and arms licences should be granted to those NRIs who feel insecure.
“Justice should not be delayed and the number of NRI courts should be increased to deliver justice in a time-bound manner,” Chahal said.
