Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh to meet Prime Minister Trudeau on Wednesday

Justin Trudeau on 7-day visit to India from tomorrow – 4 places where you can meet him

According to sources, Trudeau's objective would be to expand the overall ties between the two countries with a focus on defence and security, counter-terror cooperation, trade and investment and tackling climate change.

Trudeau will hold bilateral talks with Modi on Friday, a day before he wraps up his tour.

He said the indifferent attitude suggest that the GoI is readying to "corner Trudeau during his meet with Modi by discussing Canadian Sikhs activism who raise voice against human rights violations and state repression in Punjab".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau definitely is a social media darling, thanks to his charming looks and fashion sense. Trudeau is also expected to visit the partition museum, added officials.

The Trudeau family are repeating history in a visit to India. When President Putin visited India (in 2002), Vasundhara Raje, as Minister of State (MEA), and I, as our envoy in Moscow, had received him. Indian officials have been at pains to clarify this wasn't in any way a snub for the soft stand taken by Trudeau's Liberal Party of Canada towards Sikh radicals espousing the cause of Khalistan. "The fact that a junior minister was sent to receive Mr Trudeau and his family is most definitely a snub", columnist and economist Vivek Dehejia told the BBC.

Trudeau said Monday he raised that issue with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi when they met at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland in January.

Commentators in Canadian media highlighted that union minister of state for agriculture Gajendra Shekhawat received Trudeau at the Delhi airport when he arrived on a 7-day India visit on Saturday evening and contrasted it against Modi himself receiving several world leaders at the airport. Noting the huge amount of "compatibility and complementarity" between the two nations, the Canadian prime minister urged the leaders of both nations to work together for the common benefits of their people. Trudeau sported an attractive red bandhgala accompanied by a cream-coloured churidar and even a matching stole.




"A handsome place of peace, humanity and truth that is as needed today as ever", Trudeau wrote in the visitor's book at the Sabarmati Ashram.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his family members were dressed in Indian traditional attire. "Sukhbir Badal will welcome the Canadian PM at the Golden Temple".

The Canadian PM will meet Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh in Amritsar on Wednesday. "I'm hopeful that this meeting will help strengthen the close Indo-Canadian business ties as well as the deep-rooted people-to-people relations between our two countries", the chief minister tweeted.

Now, with Sajjan's intervention, the meeting between Capt Amarinder and Trudeau is official.

The Sikhs in Canada wield significant political clout and Trudeau's Cabinet has four Sikh members.

Referring to the issue of immigration, especially in context of most of the countries globally looking inwards and raising barriers, Trudeau said that he and Canada firmly believed that the new reality for 21st century is going to be heterogeneous societies.
