The Congress Party on Tuesday backed Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh's assertion that Harjit Singh Sajjan was a Khalistani sympathizer and urged the nationalist BJP-led government to seek a clarification in this regard from the visiting Canadian Defence Minister.
Military matters, trade, culture and innovation are among the issues Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan will be talking about during a trip to India.
Sajjan, Canada's first defence minister of Sikh origin, will also travel to Amritsar home to the Golden Temple, the spiritual and cultural centre for the Sikh religion, as well as visit Punjab state capital of Chandigarh and India's largest metropolis, Mumbai.
Singh had on Wednesday alleged that Sajjan like his father is a "Khalistani sympathiser" and he would not meet him during his scheduled visit to India later this month.
He named other Canadian political leaders, including Navdeep Bains, Amarjit Sohi, Sukh Dhaliwal, Darshan Kang, Raj Grewal, Harinder Malhi, Roby Sahota, Jagmeet Singh and Randeep Sari, as "well known for their leanings towards the Khalistani movement".
"I am also very proud of the fact that I was born here..."
Captain Singh, who holds the highest office in Punjab, has branded a Punjabi heading Canada's defence as a "Khalistani sympathiser". "Not here for petty politics, my actions speak for me". My reason of going to Punjab is to pay respect. The relationship between Canada and Punjab is based on its people.
"He (Sajjan) is a high dignitary of a sovereign country and India enjoys good relations with Canada", he added. "I stayed away from his visit just because of his meetings with Khalistanis". I was born in Punjab and I am attached to it.
