Asian Journal - - Nation -

Wash­ing­ton DC: Devin­der Shory, Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment for Cal­gary North­east was awarded the NRI Pravasi Rat­tan Award dur­ing the Non-Res­i­dent In­dian (NRI) Wel­fare So­ci­ety’s Global Achiev­ers Con­clave on May 13, 2015. The award cer­e­mony was held at the In­dian Em­bassy in Wash­ing­ton, DC and the award was pre­sented by N.K. Mishra, In­dian Min­is­ter of Per­son­nel & Com­mu­nity Af­fairs and the Global Achiev­ers Con­clave Con­venor Mr. Deepak Singh. “I am de­lighted to be rec­og­nized for my on­go­ing ef­forts to strengthen the grow­ing re­la­tion­ship be­tween Canada and In­dia. With the re­cent visit to Canada by In­dian Prime Min­is­ter Modi the re­la­tion­ship be­tween our two coun­tries has never been stronger,” said MP Shory. “To be hon­oured with other dis­tin­guished NRIs, who are mak­ing last­ing con­tri­bu­tions in the fields of busi­ness, medicine, law, academia and gov­ern­ment all over the world, re­in­forces my de­sire to keep con­tribut­ing to the com­mu­nity and to con­tinue to rep­re­sent the hard work­ing con­stituents of Cal­gary North­east in the House of Com­mons.” The NRI Wel­fare So­ci­ety acts as a bridge be­tween the In­dian di­as­pora and the Min­istry of Over­seas In­dian Af­fairs. Each year the So­ci­ety hosts a con­clave to hon­our the suc­cesses and con­tri­bu­tions of dis­tin­guished NRIs. Past award cer­e­monies have been held in dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions around the world, in­clud­ing in the Bri­tish House of Lords.
