The central government has expressed strong opposition to the remarks made by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau regarding the farmer movement in India. The Foreign Ministry, which has already expressed its objection to this comment, summoned Canada High Commissioner Nadir Patel on Friday and handed over a strong objection demarche (objection letter).
India said that the intervention of the Canadian PM or other leaders in its internal affairs is not acceptable and if such rhetoric continues, it will have a serious impact on bilateral relations. In the context of the peasant movement, Trudeau said that he supports the democratic protest and is raising the issue with the Indian government.
After Trudeau, some ministers and other MPs of his cabinet also made statements against the Indian government regarding the peasant movement.
