PM Trudeau faces more questions about India while in Montreal

After testifying at a House of Commons national security committee on an unrelated matter, Goodale faced repeated requests from reporters to explain why a government official suggested in a media briefing that factions in the Indian government may have tried to sabotage Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's trip to India in February.

Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale was grilled over the Jaspal Atwal affair in an awkward exchange with reporters Thursday that ended with him almost crossing paths with the Liberal MP who claimed responsibility for inviting the attempted murderer to events with the prime minister in India.

"'I don't wade into operational discussions because that is not in the best interest of Canada", he said. The opposition pressed Trudeau to say whether he agreed with Jean's "conspiracy theory". Adding that it was the previous Conservative government that "torqued the public service every possible way they could". Let me categorically state that the Government of India, including the security agencies, had nothing to do with the presence of Jaspal Atwal at the event hosted by the Canadian High Commissioner in Mumbai or the invitation issued to him for the Canadian High Commissioner's reception in New Delhi.

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has faced persistent criticism over a convicted Sikh extremist's attendance at a Canadian event in Mumbai, almost a week after the premier's return from a trip to India.

Third, Trudeau trotted out a bureaucrat who blamed "rogue elements" within the Indian government who wanted to make Trudeau look bad.

Ujjal Dosanjh, a prominent moderate Sikh and a former Canadian Liberal minister, told AFP last week: "The movement was all but dead, but it has resurfaced in Canada in the last few years partly because Canadian politicians have been careless in associating with these people".

Insisting that India had nothing to do with Atwal's presence at the Mumbai event or the invitation for the reception, External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said any suggestion to the contrary was "baseless and unacceptable".

Trudeau has said he does not support Sikh extremists, despite appearing in several photographs with Atwal published by Canadian media - while New Delhi has rejected the conspiracy theory put forward by Trudeau's top intelligence official.

The Trudeau government had then termed the invitation to Atwal "an error of judgment" on part of Canadian minister Randeep Sarai, although reports soon emerged citing a senior security official in the Canadian Prime Minister's Office that India had orchestrated it to embarrass the Canadian govt.

"As I said the individual in question never should have received an invitation and the member of parliament responsible for extending that invitation has taken responsibility and apologized for that", said Trudeau.
