MP Grewal of Canada to fight against gambling addiction in Chandigarh | chandigarh


Rajvinder Grewal resigned from Brampton East as Liberal MP while fighting a personal gambling addiction.

In a Facebook article addressing the electorate on Saturday, the 33-year-old Ludhiana-born leader, more known as Raj Grewal, said:, As many Canadian people with addictive problems, I know I have a problem. My focus is on my mental health and healing time with my family.

Ileme I'm sorry for disappointing you, my family, friends and supporters. You've all poured me a lot of time, energy and love. You have given my founders and colleagues faith in serving me. I enjoy my work, every minute. But lately, I knew I couldn't offer my staff the best of my ability because of my personal problem. Therefore, I decided to spend some time reviewing my health, ım he wrote, asking for privacy.

In a statement issued by the office of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, he also said he has stepped down to fight the gambling issue, which "led to serious personal debt".

Trudeau supported Grewal's decision and tweeted, u Yesterday (Thursday), I learned that Raj Grewal was facing serious personal challenges and announced his dismissal as a Member of Parliament for Brampton East. It was a difficult decision, but it was the right one. I hope he gets the support he needs. "


The move appears as a regression to the Trudeau team, who have been re-nominated as candidate in the 2019 federal elections since the Punjabi diaspora in Canada and Grewal from the village of Sarabha in Ludwiana. Trudeau will have to call a bypoll before this because of the timing of his resignation.

Grewal, who took office in the House of Commons on October 19, 2015, made his first announcement in a Facebook post Thursday night, citing "personal and medical" reasons. At the same time, he said he was hopeful to be able to represent the constituency again.
