Amritsar Punjab summit prior to G20 nations

Dal Khalsa, the group that represents Sikhs, will host the Punjab Summit in Amritsar on March 19 in order to express Punjab's perspective to the G20 nations on social, economic, educational, agricultural, human rights, and political issues.

The Punjab Summit will take place in Amritsar from March 15–17 and 19–20 at the same time as the G20 conference.

Before the delegates' visits to Amritsar, the organisation has already sent letters to the heads of missions of all 19 nations in Delhi.

According to Paramjit Singh Mand, a spokesman for the Dal Khalsa, speakers at the summit would include personalities and topic specialists as well as members from other Sikh organisations, institutes, and farmers' groups.

Paramjit Singh Tanda, the general secretary, declared: "We have no problems with our guests from across the world; they are extremely welcome.

It is our duty to explain to them that, while progress and peace go hand in hand, justice and equality come after peace.

If governmental persecution and injustice are the norm, peace cannot be built.

Kanwar Pal Singh, a prominent party leader, claimed that Punjabis had several grievances against New Delhi.

"India faces several questions.

The Indian government is attempting to project a positive image during its presidency, but the reality on the ground is quite different.

The world community has to pay notice because the situation is dire.

When it comes to Sikhs and other persecuted people, all assertions of democracy and justice have been proven false.

According to Paramjit Singh Mand, the topics for discussion include: Indian state meddling in Sikh religious affairs; Colonial/imperialist rule of India in Punjab; disrespect and human rights violations of indigenous people and minorities; saffronization of the educational system and imposition of one language, one culture on the religious and ethnic minorities; injustice and discrimination towards political prisoners; and State engineering immigrant influx to change demograph impact of state policy on rural communities' agricultural economy,

The state misrepresents the fight for the right to self-determination as an issue with law and order and refuses to recognize it as a political conflict in need of political responses.
