During her visit to her paternal village of Jandali, Sahota was greeted warmly by thousands of well-wishers including prominent community leaders and activists of various constitutional, social and religious organizations.
Sahota also spoke with law students at Patiala’s Punjabi University, visiting a family-run small business, inaugurating a literature festival, and visiting the Harmandir Sahib (commonly known as the Golden Temple) with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and 13 other Canadian MPs.
“Canada and India share a special bond, and are linked by tremendous people-to-people connections. The more than one million Canadians of Indian origin make the relationship between our two countries a truly special one. I look forward to building and fostering relationships to further strengthen the Canada-India friendship.” Sahota was reported to state.
