Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Snubbed In India?

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday visited the Sabarmati Ashram where Mahatma Gandhi lived for more than a decade. Sons Xavier and Hadrien, who also accompanied their parents, stood by their mother.

NEW DEHLI: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is in India on a week-long visit but the Indian leader Narendra Modi is not with him.

Mathura District Magistrate S R Mishra and the SSP Police Swapnil accorded a warm welcome to the Trudeau along with Kartick Satyanarayan and Geeta Seshamani, founders of Wildlife SOS at the Elephant Conservation and Care Center. Harinder Kaur Malhi, a legislator from Trudeau's party, had moved a resolution against India to recognise the anti-Sikh riots of November 1984 as a genocide.

According to reports, the Canada Prime Minister's perceived support towards pro-Khalistan elements calling for a separate nation to be carved out of India's Punjab state, is likely behind the "snub" of PM Trudeau.

Moreover, Yesterday, Trudeau was not welcomed by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, when he visited Taj Mahal long with his family. He also visited a wildlife sanctuary in Mathura's Churmura with his family.

"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 had tweeted on Friday before embarking on the trip.

The tour - which includes stops in cities such as Amritsar, Ahmedabad, the financial hub of Mumbai and New Delhi - will see Trudeau connecting with leaders in government and business.
