I  am not anti-migrant at all.” She added that there’s no problem with Indian migrants and that it was nice to be part of the Indian festival as a national political party, “It’s very special what I understand as a community. I am still learning. I don’t understand it fully but I think as a member of parliament and a national political party, it’s nice to be a part of it and support the Indian community on this special day.”

Diwali is truly an Indian festival and a social affair an occasion to reconnect the local Indian community full of fun, food and entertainment. Diwali is becoming a universal festival.
