Canadian PM Justin Trudeau arrives in Delhi with family

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau arrives in Delhi with family”

With just three days to go for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's visit to Amritsar, many questions regarding details of his trip remain unanswered.

The sources said the objective of the Canadian prime minister's visit here would be to expand overall ties between the two countries with a focus on defence and security, counter-terror cooperation, trade and investment and tackling climate change. He is also expected to visit the Partition museum situated nearby.

During the course of his stay in India, Trudeau will also visit Agra, Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Amritsar.

Trudeau will be accompanied by six ministers, including four Sikhs of Punjabi origin - Harjit Sajjan whom Capt Amarinder had boycotted when he visited past year while dubbing him as "Khalistani sympathiser", Navdeep Bains, Amarjit Sohi and Bardish Chagger.

Trudeau was received at New Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport by Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, a junior agriculture minister.

During his visit, Trudeau will interact with business leaders, representatives of the film industry and students.

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. Justin Trudeau was born on December 25, 1971, to the late Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and his wife, Margaret.

February 18: PM Trudeau will begin his programme with a visit to the Taj Mahal in Agra.

In Amritsar, Trudeau will be visiting the Golden Temple - the holiest of Sikh shrines. He will return to Delhi the same day. In Ahmedabad, he will participate in a discussion at Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad and also visit Sabarmati Ashram.

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.

Vikas Swaraup, the Indian high commissioner to Canada was also on the red carpet for the arrival, live tweeting shots waiting for the plane to land and once it was on the ground, saying that "a long wait is finally over".
