As a part of Justin Trudeau’s delegation to India, a journalist who had protested PM Narendra Modi’s visit to Canada in 2015. As per the report of The Indian Express, it has been unearthed that Saini is indeed a part of Justin Trudeau’s media delegation to India. It was back in April 2015 when pictures of Saini came to light where he was seen holding banners stating, “Modi is a Terrorist” and “Modi you are not welcome in Canada” and “India out of Khalistan”. It has also come to light that Saini attended a formal event which was hosted by High Commissioner of Canada in India, Nadir Patel. The event happened in New Delhi on Thursday. Saini is likely to be a part of the media delegation when the Canadian PM Justin Trudeau meets Prime Minister Modi today.

This incident comes after the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Thursday started off with a probe that how a pro-Khalistani supporter Jaspal Atwal was issued a visa. Atwal’s invite to the dinner with High Commissioner Patel had been cancelled.

While speaking to The Indian Express, journalist Saini has confirmed that he was indeed a part of Trudeau’s media delegation. Saini also said that he was attending the event hosted by Canadian High Commissioner. The Journalist has said that he will not comment on the pictures that were seen in 2015. Sources have said that Saini visited Punjab and even attended Sarbat Khalsa that was convened by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee. Saini is working with Canadian TV channel TV84 which is run by Dr Amarjit Singh.
