The Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, currently on his eight-day long India visit, has been completely ignored by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi as he has not yet met him or posted any welcome tweet.
New Delhi: After landing on Saturday, Mr. Trudeau was received by a junior agricultural minister and despite being in India for two days has not met with the Indian prime minister Narendra Modi.
The Canadian PM and his family were also only received by district officials when he visited the iconic Taj Mahal in Agra a day later on Sunday. The Indian Prime Minister was also absent when Mr. Trudeau visited his home state of Gujarat on Monday.
Diplomatic sources said by “downgrading” these subtle arrangements, Mr. Modi’s Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government was “indicating” its displeasure over Mr Trudeau attending an event organised by Sikhs in Toronto last May.
