Los Angeles: The Indian Oversees Congress in the US has urged the
Indian government to confer Padma Shri, India's fourth highest
civilian honour, on Air India Kanishka inquiry head who has made
far-reaching recommendations in his report.
Former Canadian chief justice John Major, who headed the public
inquiry into the lapses that led to the bombing of the Kanishka
flight 25 years ago that killed all 329 passengers on board, in
his report in June has recommended a major overhaul of the
Canadian security to avoid such tragedies in the future.

century,'' the letter to the Indian President says.
"We request you on behalf of the families of the innocent 'NRI
martyrs' to recommend Justice John Major of Canada for the Padma
Vikram Bajwa of the California chapter of the Indian Oversees
Congress told IANS, "We have also got in touch with Justice John
Major to thank him for his work and seek his consent for
recommending his name for the Indian civilian award.''
He said, "We are also writing to Congress president Sonia Gandhi
for including Justice John Major in the list of the Padma Shree
recipients for 2011.''
In his inquiry report submitted in June, Justice John Major has
also recommended an ex gratia payment to the victim families.
Though the Canadian government has accepted many of its
recommendations, it says it still working with the victim families

Washington D.C., December 11,11. -
Indian Overseas Congress, CA-USA President Vikram Bajwa supports
FDI, in Retail as much as getting India into G-5 CLUB.
Even though twelve million non-resident
Indians across US and Canada share similar thoughts with UPA
GOvt.,Opposition is hampering the constructive work being
implemented by Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and his team.
Last time when we discussed Nuclear Energy,
there was Opposition too, FDI is more powerful the Nuke Energy,
will support UPA headed by Sonia Gandhi to evolve the future in
the right FDI-direction, undertaken by Rahul Gandhi. Rahul
Gandhi not only encourages transparency in politics but is
India’s voice to curb corruption at all levels.
As far as foreign direct investment is
concerned, this is the only chance for India to enter the , G-5
& G-8 club, or else it will be history. FDI investments will
create over 25 million jobs, thus providing the best to
consumers in India.
IOC President while exchanging Christmas
greetings with the Staffs of India Caucus, here in Washington
D.C., strongly advocated support for FDI in India.
