Canada’s Conservative Leader Aims to Mend Fences with India Amid Diplomatic Strain
Canadian’s Prime Minister’s opponent and Conservative party leader Pierre Poilievre took aim at Justin Trudeau and said that Justin Trudeau continuously making baseless statements on the world’s largest democracy like India and spoiled our relations with the world’s largest democracy like India. If his party comes to power, he will work towards improving relations with India in the future. Expressing his displeasure over the recent rift in relations between Canada and India, Justin Trudeau called it “incompetence and unprofessionalism.” in the words of Mr Pierre Poilievre
” Justin Trudeau is considered a laughing stock in India (The world’s biggest democracy. This is another example of how Justin Trudeau is not worth the cost after 8 long years. He has turned Canadians against each other at home and he has blown up relations abroad He is so incompetent and unprofessional that we are in major disputes with every major power in the world, and that includes India”. He also pledged to restore a “professional relationship with India if his party were to assume power.
America and England had already told India not to put pressure on Canada to reduce diplomatic presence. In the ongoing tussle between India and Canada, the talk of reducing Canadian diplomats has further deteriorated the relations between these two countries.
Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre blames PM Today for the deteriorating relations between Canada and India and says that OTTAWA wants a professional relationship with the Modi government.
Poilievre told Toronto’s Namaste Radio that “It’s fine to have our disagreement and to hold each other accountable, but we have to have a professional relationship with the Indian Government.”
Modi Government also says that its relations are going through a bad phase only with the Federal Liberals who are currently in power in Canada and not with the whole of Canada. This is an optimistic statement which will improve the relations between India and Canada in the future. There is still hope for warmth to come.
All this development begins after the statement given in the House of Common last month in which Justin Trudeau accused the Indian government agency of being involved in the murder of Khalistan terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar in British Columbia.
Poilievre told Toronto’s Namaste Radio, “It’s fine to have our disagreement and to hold each other accountable, but we have to have a professional relationship with the Indian Government.”
Before all this incident, the Government of India had expressed its displeasure on the separatist movement going on in Canada, but no special action was taken by the Government of Canada on this.
In conclusion, the recent strain in Canada-India relations, spurred by statements made by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, has raised concerns about the diplomatic ties between these two nations. Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre has been vocal about his party’s commitment to restoring a professional relationship with India if they come to power.
It’s important to note that these disagreements are largely seen as a result of the current government in Canada, and not indicative of the sentiment of the entire country. The hope remains that, as the political landscape evolves, relations between Canada and India will improve.
This situation developed after allegations made by Trudeau in the House of Commons, linking an Indian government agency to the murder of Khalistan terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar. Despite these recent tensions, the door to diplomatic reconciliation between these two nations is not completely closed. There is optimism that in the future, both countries can find common ground and rebuild their relationship on a professional footing.
