BRITAIN’S first turbaned Sikh MP Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi met Indian ministers in New Delhi and urged them to start a direct flight service between India’s Amritsar and London.



The Indian-origin British MP met country’s civil aviation minister Hardeep Singh Puri and minister of state for commerce and industry Som Parkash last week to for a new flight service between the two cities.

Dhesi sought the new flight service in a bid to fulfill the long-pending demand of a large number of Punjabi diaspora and people of Punjab.

Commenting on his demand for a new flight service, the UK MP said: “Since being elected, I have been taking the legitimate demand of the diaspora community for direct flights to Amritsar from London to Indian ministers.



“In addition to boosting trade, tourism, and cultural ties between both nations, it will no doubt prove lucrative for operators, since Amritsar is visited by millions each year.

“It’s high time there is a direct link between the global centre of London and the spiritual centre of Amritsar.”
