Justin Trudeau Raises 'Concern About Farmers' Protest’, India Hits Back At Canadian PM Over His Remarks, Says ‘Ill-Informed’

INDIA Team Latestly|

Comments by Canadian leaders relating to farmers in India are "ill-informed" and "unwarranted", India said on December 1. This comes after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau weighed in on the farmers' protest, saying the "situation is concerning". Backing farmers who have intensified their agitation against the new farm laws in India, Trudeau said, "Canada will always be there to defend the rights of peaceful protest”. Trudeau, 48, is the first world leader to comment on the farmers' protests. Thousands of people from several states, including Punjab, are camped out on the outskirts of Delhi for a seventh straight day, in the biggest protest by farmers in years. Shiv Sena deputy leader Priyanka Chaturvedi was among those who did not welcome Trudeau's remarks, pointing out that the farmers' protest is India's internal matter.
