Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Kultar Sandhwan clarified that he was not deported from Canada and the problem occurred due to a communication gap.
Earlier, reports emerged that two AAP MLAs from Punjab, Sandhwan, and Amarjeet Singh Sandoa were allegedly denied entry into Canada and deported to India soon after they landed there for a personal visit.
The AAP MLA further said the immigration authorities asked them to return India as they were not sure whether the visit was personal or political.
Speaking to media, Sandhwan said. “I was not deported, due to a communication gap and being an MLA they got confused whether it’s my political or personal visit. They told me that next time I should come with prior information about my schedule.”
Sandhwan and Sandoa were reportedly detained and quizzed by the immigration officials regarding the purpose of their visit.
