Tan Dhesi MP, urged Government to support those in Afghanistan in a speech in Parliament, following a letter on Monday from Government that stated they would not be pursuing Afghan cases in the usual ways and will only be logging cases for data purposes.
Tan Dhesi MP said:
“To help create this situation is bad enough, but for the Government not to do all they can to support those impacted is unconscionable and unforgivable.
Government has betrayed our Afghan friends, with the lives of those who bravely helped our troops, minorities such as Sikhs and Hindus, and human rights activists, at risk. Instead of abandoning them, Govt must do everything it can to help my endangered constituents and avert a humanitarian crisis.”
