Minister Justin Trudeau
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau arrived in India on Saturday for a weeklong visit aimed at enhancing business ties between the two countries.
"Wheels up for India and a busy visit, focused on creating good jobs and strengthening the deep connection between the people of our two countries", Trudeau posted on his official Twitter account, along with a photo of the family boarding the plane in Ottawa. He is also expected to visit the Partition museum situated nearby. He will visit the Golden Temple in Amritsar, Jama Masjid and Cricket stadium in New Delhi.
A number of Trudeau's cabinet colleagues including Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland, Science and Economic Development Minister Navdeep Bains, Defence MInister Harjit Singh Sajjan, Science and Sports Minister Kirsty Duncan and Infrastructure Minister Amarjeet Sohi are also visiting India.
A story claiming that Fidel Castro was the father of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is not true. Officials said Trudeau's visit to Gujarat will be the first by a Canadian prime minister.
Canadian Prime Minister, Stephen Harper said merely advocating for a Khalistan homeland was not a crime and should not be confused with the right of Canadians to hold and promote their political views.
"We have nothing planned with him at this time", said one Canadian official, speaking anonymously to Canadian vernacular Times Colonist about Prime Minister Trudeau meeting Captain Amarinder. Besides, Trudeau is also likely to visit the Partition Museum, recently established in the colonial-era building of Town Hall in the vicinity of Golden Temple.
Curiosity has peaked after Canadian media reported that Trudeau will not meet with the "Indian leader behind Sikh separatist controversy". He will return to Delhi the same day.
Every word Trudeau speaks about the experience of the minority Sikh community in India when he visits the Sikh homeland will be closely watched and dissected by Sikhs not only in Canada, but other parts of the globe. This conference features TED-talk style discussions by young leaders in business, civil society, the film industry and sports.
Canada is also home to around 1.4 million people of Indian origin.
