Amarinder Singh calls Canadian defence minister 'Khalistani sympathiser', says won't meet him

Chandigarh: Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Wednesday called Canadian Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan a "Khalistani sympathiser" and said he would not meet him during his expected visit to India later this month.

Speaking during a programme on a channel, the Chief Minister alleged: “Harjit Sajjan is a Khalistani sympathiser and so was his father.”

"There were, in fact, five ministers in the Justin Trudeau government who were Khalistani sympathisers and I will not have any truck with them," he claimed.

“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's poll campaign in Canada was stalled last year in the run-up to the Punjab Assembly Elections.

Sajjan, the Member of Parliament for Vancouver South, is expected to travel to India later this month in his first visit since his appointment as minister.
