PM should clarify on his statement against India, Canadian opposition leader attacks Trudeau

Opposition leader Poilievre said that I think the Prime Minister needs to come forward clearly with all the facts. We need to know all the possible evidence so that Canadians can make a decision on that.

PM Justin Trudeau has come under attack from the opposition in his own country over the souring of diplomatic relations between India and Canada over the murder of a Khalistani leader. Taking a dig at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's allegations against India for being involved in the alleged murder of Khalistani leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar, opposition leader Pierre Poilievre has said that he should come clean with all the facts.

On Tuesday, Poilievre said that I think the Prime Minister needs to come forward clearly with all the facts. We need to know all the possible evidence so that Canadians can make a decision on that.

Prime Minister did not give any facts: Poilievre

Poilievre's comments came in response to a media question about what else should be done after Canada expels an Indian diplomat. He said the Prime Minister has not given any facts, he has given a statement, and I will just emphasize that he has told me no more privately than he has told Canadians publicly. So we want to see more information.

He said that if more information is not provided the allegations may be found to be false or unbelievable. He said that we should have such evidence which will help the Prime Minister to reach the conclusions which he had said in his statement. I need to have more evidence to decide on that.

Accusation of murder by shooting Nijjar

In fact, on Monday, Trudeau had accused the Indian government of shooting dead Hardeep Singh Nijjar. He claimed that his country's national security officials have reason to believe that "agents of the Government of India" carried out the murder of the Canadian citizen, who was also the president of the Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara in Surrey.

NIA had declared him a fugitive

Let us tell you that Nijjar, wanted in India, was shot outside a Gurudwara in a parking area in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada on June 18. Nijjar, a resident of Bharsinghpur village in Jalandhar, Punjab, lived in Surrey and was declared a fugitive by the National Investigation Agency (NIA). However, India has rejected Canadian PM Trudeau's allegations regarding government involvement in the fatal shooting of Nijjar.
