He will meet state Chief Minister Amrinder Singh.

On Monday, Singh confirmed officially as well as on social media that he would be meeting Trudeau. Last year, the CM of Punjab had refused to meet the defence minister of Canada, Jarjit Sajjan's visit to India and even accused him of being a "khalistani sympathizer". "So, Indo-Canada for me is important for me in terms of people to people connect", Trudeau said in a conversation with Managing Director (MD) and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) ICICI Bank Chanda Kochhar here.
