Chandigarh: Condemning the pasting of racist posters in University of Alberta in Canada, State Convenor of NRI Cell of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Jagtar Singh Sanghera termed the incident as ‘shameful’.
Sanghera, who is also member of the AAP’s State Campaign Committee, stated that these posters show image of a Man in turban with the racist message which asks Sikhs to go back to their home country, which is highly deplorable and condemnable.

“Sikhs have already proved their mettle in building the economy of Canada, which was even recognised by the consecutive governments of the country too”, Sanghera said while praising the authorities of University, which quickly removed these racist posters.
It is pertinent to mention here that as many as twelve such identical posters were found on the campus Monday, including one at the university’s main library.
