'Respect for each others' concerns': PM Modi replies to Justin Trudeau's 'congratulatory' post

PTC Web Desk: Four days after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau congratulated Narendra Modi on his Lok Sabha election victory with an apparently concealed message, the newly sworn-in Prime Minister graciously acknowledged the greetings on Monday but followed up with a stern response wrapped in a polite post.

On June 6, two days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's BJP became the single-largest party in the Lok Sabha, Justin Trudeau congratulated Modi on X. He did, however, discuss the future of India-Canada relations, emphasising that the relationships were based on human rights, diversity, and the rule of law.


“Congratulations to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his electoral victory. Canada stands ready to work with his government to advance the relationship between our nations’ peoples—anchored to human rights, diversity, and the rule of law," the Canadian PM office wrote.

PM Modi responded to his message in the same tone, saying India looks forward to working with Canada on the basis of mutual understanding and respect for each other's concerns.

"Thank you @CanadianPM for the congratulatory message. India looks forward to working with Canada based on mutual understanding and respect for each other's concerns," he said.

India-Canada relations deteriorated last year after Sikh leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar was assassinated in Surrey by unidentified assailants. Canada accused alleged Indian agents of murdering Nijjar. India has dismissed the charges as absurd.
