New Delhi: Terming the so-called Khalistan referendum carried out by separatist teams as a “farcical train”, India on Thursday mentioned it had conveyed considerations to Canada about using its territory by politically motivated “extremist components”. A big crowd of Canadian Sikhs participated in voting for the Khalistan Referendum in Canada’s Brampton metropolis on September 19 asking whether or not Indian Punjab shouldn’t be a separate nation. Talking at a weekly media briefing in New Delhi, Exterior Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi mentioned India has raised critical considerations on the referendum challenge.
India has deeply objected that “politically motivated workouts by extremist components” are allowed to happen in a pleasant nation like Canada, he mentioned. “We’d time period it as farcical train. A farcical train was held by extremists and radical components supporting the so-called Khalistan referendum in Canada,” Bagchi mentioned. He mentioned India has taken up the problem with Canadian authorities they usually reiterated respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of India.
“The matter has been taken up with the Canadian authorities via diplomatic channels. The federal government of Canada has reiterated that they respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of India and they won’t recognise the so-called referendum which is going down in Canada,” the MEA spokesperson mentioned.” Nonetheless, we discover it deeply objectionable that politically motivated workouts by extremist components are allowed to happen in a pleasant nation. You all are conscious of the historical past of violence on this regard,” he added. Bagchi mentioned the federal government of India will proceed to press the federal government of Canada on this matter.
