With uncertainties about the political landscape of Punjab, most of the Punjabi NRIs seem undecided in offering support to any political party ahead of the assembly elections. 
Most of the NRIs appeared concerned over the long-pending stand-off between farmers and the Centre over the subject of agricultural legislation. 
Many also appeared upset with ambiguous views of political parties on the topic.
“NRIs do hold a sway among the villagers in their native villages and they do seek our opinion about various issues related to village. The political situation in state seems to be stuck as of now and our and that of our villagers focus is on the farmer agitation. I think that political activity will pick up after are announced and I think people will mostly follow what the farmers union ask them to do. I have doubts whether the farmers unions will ask people to support any political party,” stated 49-year-old Charanjit Singh, who belongs to a Samrala village and lives in Calgary. He indicated that conventional events didn’t meet the expectations of NRIs, in order that they search for change within the system.
NRIs say whilst farmer agitation is of their minds, they need folks to elect a clear authorities.
“We want the farmers’ issue to be resolved amicably for peace in India in general and Punjab in particular. There is uncertainty among people, including NRIs, as to what will happen in the state in coming time. NRIs want to invest in the state, but they want a clean government,” stated Gurdeep Singh from Kadon village, who lives in Vancouver.
Parminder Singh, sarpanch of Kadon village, stated NRIs have contributed immensely to the event of the villages in order that they do search their assist and opinion in taking selections. He stated whilst they’ve banned political exercisehowever farm legal guidelines stay the principle challenge and NRIs have contributed to the agitation.
The sarpanch stated NRIs have curiosity of their villages as they’ve properties, kin right here.
NRIs justify their help to the farmers agitation.
“Though development had been main issue in previous elections, this time around farm laws remain the main concern for everyone, including NRIs. Farm laws will impact common masses in Punjab, so it is about our survival,” stated 59-year-old Balvir Singh, an NRI of Kamalpur village whose son lives in Alberta Calgary. He stated they’ve seen what occurs in Canada and United States the place there isn’t a MSP. The village has round 350 households of NRIs who dwell within the US, Canada, Italy, New Zealand, Australia and many others.
Gurpreet Singh of Sidhwan Kalan who’s inexperienced card holder in United states and lives close to Los Angeles, stated he had come to India on January 17, 2020 and had been supporting the farmers’ agitation. He stated authorities must scrap “black laws” and they’re going to get it achieved at any price.
“Our focus is on getting farm laws scrapped so focus in elections will be on that. Politics in state will end if these laws are not taken back. We will protest in a peaceful manner and will continue to provide support to the agitation,” stated Gurpreet Singh.
