Canadian Minister refuses to comment on Khalistan tag

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Canadian Defence Minister Harjit Singh Sajjan on Tuesday refused to comment on charges that he was a Khalistan backer and said he was proud to have been born in

"I have been given many labels through my life," Sajjan said, when he was asked about allegations that he was a Khalistan supporter.

"I don't want to be sucked into the internal of a province of a nation. My goal is to build relationships. I am proud of the fact that I was born here," he said.

Sajjan arrived in on Monday on a week-long visit. He will visit Punjab too.

Sajjan was dubbed a Khalistan sympathiser by Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, who has said he would not meet the Canadian minister.
