Prem Singh Chandumajra, Shiromani Akali Dal leader and Parliament Member
 from the historic Anandpur Sahib Parliamentary constituency visited New
 York recently and held a meeting with the local Shiromani Akali Dal 
leaders at the residence of SAD leader Raghbir Singh Subhanpur. A large 
number of party members attended the lunch meeting.

Speaking on the occasion, Prof. 
Chandumajra said that he was aware of the problems the Punjabis, 
particularly, the Sikhs were having in respect of passport and visa and 
would take up the issue with the Consul General in New York. He said he 
had, on his visit to California,
 where he had gone to attend a wedding, taken up the matter with the 
Consul General in San Francisco, too. He blamed the government of India for not being sensitive to the difficulties the Sikhs faced for being denied the passport and visa.

Speaking about the situation in Punjab under the Congress government of Captain Amarinder Singh,
 he said people were already fed up with the Congress government 
working. He accused the Punjab government of total inaction and said the
 State was being pushed in to deeper economic and social morass.
