India summons Canadian envoy over PM Trudeau’s remark on farmers’ right to protest NEW DELHI

Minister Justin Trudeau expressed support for Indian farmers’ right to peaceful protests, India summoned Canadian high commissioner Nadir Patel on Friday to lodge a protest. India said that Trudeau’s comments would have a “seriously damaging impact” on bilateral ties. India has clearly escalated its demonstration of grievance on Trudeau’s remarks, delivered during a Facebook live event to mark the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak on Monday. India’s immediate response on Tuesday had been to say that it had noted “some ill-informed comments by Canadian leaders relating to farmers in India”. It also termed them unwarranted, “especially when pertaining to the internal affairs of a democratic country”. Three days later, it has lodged an official protest, in which it has specifically identified the Canadian prime minister, rather than only generic “Canadian leaders”.
