SUBJECT: Regarding Dual Citizenship for persons of Indian Origin
Dear External Affairs Minister Smt. Sushma Swaraj,
As a loyal overseas citizen of India, NRI/OCI/PIO, I would like to express my desire to become a full dual citizen of India with all the consequential citizenship privileges and responsibilities. Given the unique context of dual citizenship, such privileges are envisaged to include all associated rights given to people holding current Indian Citizenship and in addition the right to hold an Indian Passport, the right to vote in Indian elections and the right to hold a public elected office in India.
As such, I would also like to express my desire that the Indian Government accordingly amend article 9 part 2 of the Indian Constitution to include provision of dual citizenship to enable NRI/OCI/PIOs residing overseas to obtain full dual Indian Citizenship and the aforementioned rights.
The "Overseas Friends of BJP Canada Toronto" has constituted a committee to actively pursue the matter with your office and this letter is sent through the aegis of this committee.
