Jalandhar, June 2. Perturbed over the proposed immigration policy for permanent residence (PR) in Canada, aspirants from India, China, Nepal and Pakistan would hold protest rallies on June 4 in their respective countries.
More than 3 lakh Asians had applied for Canadian PR before 2008. But their hopes to seek a better future in Canada crash-landed following a proposal of the Canadian Government to terminate “certain applications” filed under its Federal Skilled Worker Programme before February 27 in 2008.
The proposed rejection of such applications had resulted into protests in north India, particularly in Punjab from where more than 2 lakh PR applications were filed before 2008. (TNS)
