Chandigarh: Punjab Chief Minister and Punjab Congress president Capt. Amarinder Singh yesterday said that he won’t meet Canadian Defence Minister Harjit Singh Sajjan as he was a “Khalistani sympathiser”. Notably, Canadian Defence Minister Sajjan Singh – a Sikh, is expecting to be visiting Punjab later this month.
“Harjit Singh Sajjan is a Khalistani sympathiser,” Amarinder reportedly said on the ‘Off the Cuff’ TV show by Indian journalist Shekhar Gupta. Amarinder claimed that there were, in fact, five ministers in the Justin Trudeau government who were Khalistani sympathisers and he would not have any of with them.
To support his contentions, Capt. Amarinder Singh said: “They had prevailed upon the government to prevent my entry into Canada, where I wanted to go to meet my Punjabi brethren and not to campaign for elections,” he was quoted as saying in a release issued by his team after the programme.
Amarinder, whose poll campaign in Canada was stalled last year in the run-up to the Punjab assembly elections, as Canadian rules does not allow any alien leader to conduct their poll campaigns on Canadian soil.
