Some of the Indian-origin lawmakers, who participated in the PIO-Parliamentary Conference today, visited their places of origin.
Ramesh Sangha, a Canadian MP from Brampton Centre, visited his hometown in Jalandhar in Punjab during his trip to India.
Sangha, a Congress worker while he was in India, migrated to Canada in 1994. He got elected to the House of Commons on the Liberal Party of Canada's ticket in 2015.
Priyanca Radhakrishnan, a lawmaker from Maungakiekie in New Zealand, also took the opportunity to visit her parents in Chennai.
However, there were also some who could not visit their place of origin.
"Coming to India is always an emotional moment," Boodhan said.
