Wetland: No Indian hand in Nijjar’s murder: Amarinder | India News


CHANDIGARH: Former chief minister of Punjab and BJP politician Captain Amarinder Singh on Tuesday dismissed the claims of Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau of Indian hand in the murder of Khalistani activist Hardeep Singh Nijjar outside a Surrey gurdwara in June.
Describing this murder a result of the factional feud within the management of Suurey’s Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara, the former CM said that the Canadian PM has unfortunately walked into a trap due to vote bank politics and put at stake the diplomatic relationship between his country and India.

“It was highly irresponsible for the PM of a country to make a statement without any evidence, only because he was playing to the vote bank gallery”, he said. Amarinder added that it was an irrefutable fact that the Trudeau administration in Canada had given a free hand to anti-India forces in that country.
“Despite intimidation of the Indian missions there and attack on diplomats, there has been no corrective action by the Canadian government”, said the BJP functionary. “Has the Canadian government taken any action against the culprits who attacked Indian missions there,” Amarinder asked. He added that Trudeau, by levelling such allegations, was only trying to deflect the attention from his own failures to curb anti-India activities in Canada.
The former CM said that he had brought to Trudeau’s notice during the latter’s visit to Amritsar on February 21, 2018 that Khalistani terrorists were using Canadian soil against India.
He added that in an Amritsar hotel, he had shared all the information with Trudeau about at least nine terrorists, but instead of any remedial measures by the Canadian government, there was an increase in anti-India activities in that country.
Amarinder also said that he had refused to meet then Canadian defence minister Harjit Singh Sajjan during his India visit in April 2017 because Sajjan was associated with the World Sikh Organisation, which had a record of working against India. He had then said that Sajjan was a Khalistani sympathiser and so was the latter’s father.
The BJP politician appreciated the central government’s decision to expel a Canadian diplomat for his involvement in encouraging anti-India activities.
