Canada PM Trudeau’s remarks on farmers’ protest in India
Trudeau’s comments are just a political stunt for appeasement of Sikh community since a significant population of Sikhs reside in Canada and majority of the protesting farmers in Delhi are Sikhs. Trudeau exactly imitated Indian politicians in opposition with such a stunt.
New Delhi – Canadian PM Justin Trudeau has passed comments regarding the ongoing farmers’ protest on the outskirts of Delhi. In a rebuff to Trudeau, India’s Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has advised him not to attempt interfering in India’s internal affairs. BJP and Shiv Sena have also condemned Trudeau.

“Comments from Canadian politicians regarding farmers in India are based on misinformation. Such comments are unwarranted, especially when they pertain to the internal matters of a democratic country. Diplomatic talks should not be misrepresented with political intent”, India’s MEA spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said.
