Dear Rt. Honourable Boris Johnson
Re: Reduction of Foreign Student Visas by 50%
I as President of National Congress of Gujarati Organisations UK representing 850,000 plus Gujaratis/Hindus in London/UK has been asked by our Members to engage with the Government regarding UK Government’s proposal to reduce the Visas Issued to Foreign Students by 50%.
UK has been a favourable destination for Overseas Students, mainly from India and Commonwealth Countries due to colonial ties
To curtail the Visas by 50% stinks of discrimination and also it would be an Economical Suicide on the long run bearing in mind UK will be out of Europe soon, will be reliant upon Old Ties such as India, Africa, Australia, Canada & US. India will be a Tiger Economy in coming years and to curtail the flow of Students by 50% is to curtail the contacts with future CEO’s, these students who will gain education in UK would be the future leaders of their Country’s Economy.
UK is also reliant upon outsourced expertise, UK recruits sizeable overseas students once they qualify due to cost concerns and superior work force.
Mr Johnson you have been and regarded as a voice of the people hence NCGO urges you to ask the Government to re-think this decision to curtail Student Visas.
NCGO is prepared to engage in negotiation with your department for meaningful outcome.
Hope to hear from you as a matter of priority
C J Rabheru
