Jagmeet Singh as Opposition leader in Canadian Parliament-A moment of pride for Indians!
Jagmeet Singh is indeed a pride for India. He has won the trust of Canadians paves a way to the Parliament as the leader of the opposition- the New Democratic Party of Canada. He is the first ever non-white leader in the history of this country. His journey from a migrant criminal lawyer to the leader of the opposition was challenging.
Many thought that he was grasping at straws and there is hardly any chance for the person from a religious minority can win in this country. But, his perseverance and hard work took him to triumph. He proved himself to be far ahead of the game.
Jagmeet Singh created history:
Before the Canadians could decide whom to vote, he traveled across the country to let the people know Who he was and what he can do for the people of Canada. Initially, he had won only less than 40% votes when there was an election to fill the vacuum in the parliamentary constituency in October 2017. The Liberalist Justin Trudeau has wished Mr. Singh all success in creating a new history in the Land of Immigrants.
In spite of the acid remarks, he got 35,000 votes out of 66,000 cast to decide the destiny of the NDA party. His campaign “Love and courage” has made an incredible impact on the people of Canada. He started his journey as a leader of the opposition party by criticizing the present prime minister Trudeau’s inability to solve the problem of unemployment in his country.
In his maiden speech, he also stressed the need of the hour to eliminate the racist ideologies the people have. He also added that it was a Herculean task for him to enter into the house of commons and then as a leader of opposition just because of his race and color. Let us hope that Mr. Singh wine the heart of millions further and create history becoming the prime minister of a great country like Canda!
