Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, on a week-long visit to India, will on Tuesday meet captains of India Inc, including Tata Sons Chairman Natarajan Chandrasekaran and Infosys Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Salil Parekh, in Mumbai. The Canadian PM will also participate in the Canada-India Business Forum on Tuesday.
Further, towards the evening, Trudeau will meet Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.
Trudeau's trip has seen the Canadian media express its displeasure over an apparent 'snub' of Trudeau by the Narendra Modi government, with the Indian prime minister not receiving his Canadian counterpart at the airport. Ostensibly, the cold shoulder is the result of the support for the militant Khalistani movement in Trudeau's government. However, the Government of India has rejected such speculation and said the Canadian PM has been extended normal diplomatic protocol.
Despite the less-than-warm start to the trip, the Canadian PM is set for a power-packed day in Mumbai on Tuesday, with a focus on meeting and interacting with business leaders.
PM Trudeau will hold bilateral talks with PM Modi on Friday, a day before he wraps up his tour. Officials said Trudeau would also have a one-on-one meeting with Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Wednesday. He would meet the Punjab CM after a visit to the Golden Temple.
