The refugees who have been residing in Punjab for over a decade, submitted a memorandum to the Jalandhar collector, Varinder Kumar Sharma, to implement the Citizenship Act in Punjab.
After submitting the memorandum, the refugees thanked the Central government for implementing this Bill and said that the Central government has given us the right and honour to live in the country.
