NEW DELHI – In recent days, life in the national capital has been brought to a halt as hundreds of farmers protest against the government’s recently enacted farm laws. The massive protests have since drawn the eye of international leaders such as Canada’s Justin Trudeau who recently brought up the topic during an online address and said that his country believed in the “importance of dialogue”. He added that Canada had reached out to Indian authorities to highlight their concerns and noted that the country would always be there to “defend the right of peaceful protest” – comments that have not gone down well with Indian officials. “The situation is concerning and we are all very worried about family and friends and I know that is a reality for many of you,” Trudeau said. His concerns were not received well by the Indian authorities, with the MEA on Tuesday calling out “ill-informed” and “unwarranted” comments about the country’s matters.
