0 23

India has rejected the comments made by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on killing of  Khalistan separatist Hardeep Singh Nijjar saying that the remarks once again illustrate the political space given to separatism, extremism and violence in Canada. Briefing media in New Delhi yesterday, MEA Spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal said, this not only impacts India-Canada relations but also encourages a climate of violence and criminality in Canada to the detriment of its citizens.

Trudeau addressed a Khalsa Day event in Toronto on Sunday that was attended by some pro-Khalistan people.

India on Monday had summoned the Canadian deputy high commissioner and lodged a strong protest with him over the raising of pro-Khalistan slogans at the event in presence of Trudeau and several other leaders.

In the case of Indian nationals who were who were duped with job offers in Myanmar, Mr Jaiswal said, three Indians had contacted for repatriation and one has already been brought back. He said, the Ministry is in touch with the two other persons. The Embassy there is working as to how they can get them released as early as possible. He further reminded of the notice to job-seekers that cautioned them to be careful, while applying for job in Myanmar.
