Trudeau Gets An Open Letter From Ex Diplomats Over MSP
Trudeau Gets An Open Letter: A group of former Indian ambassadors sent off a hard worded open letter that has called Canadian PM Justin Trudeau’s voice for Indian farmers are a cheap vote-gathering trick.
Mr. Trudeau’s stance has not gone well with the Centre in New Delhi and has left many eyebrows raised. The open letter that was signed by 22 ex diplomats also raises the question on Trudeau’s change in stance that he initially had held in the WTO where Canada had been critical over the Indian Minimum Sales Price (MSP) system.
India is trying to do away with the middle big farmer system and maintain a MSP system where each farmer actually gets paid for his due production via a private buying network.
Trudeau’s political position has been seeing some choppy waters since the pandemic hit Canada severely. After his embarrassment over China backing out on vaccine delivery, his credibility has been under scanner.
According to the open letter, Canada’s healthy economic trade with India could become a little sour owing to a fact that “not un-often, bilateral political equations develop stress, due to the propensity of certain Canadian political parties and leaders to engage in vote bank politics.”
It seems that the thought and expression is coming to appease the Liberal Party Indian vote bank that comprises in Indians settle in Canada including Khalistanis.
The latter are considered a huge radical vote bank that controls the gurudwaras and have been instrumental in funding electoral campaigns in Canada. Those taking to the streets and protesting outside India have been rich farmers who thrive as being middle men between the Centre and farmers.
