Ending the uncertainty over the meeting, Singh took to Twitter on Monday and announced his decision to meet Trudeau following persistent requests from the visiting delegation. "I appreciate his deep commitment to ties between our two countries".

The issue dates back to April past year when Singh had said that five Sikh ministers of the Justin Trudeau government in Canada were Khalistani sympathisers and refused to meet their defence minister, Harjit Sajjan, who was scheduled to arrive in India later that month. "I have no doubt that this experience will stay with my family for the rest of their lives", Trudeau said at the reception dinner.

Liberal MP Randeep Sarai, who is one of 14 MPs taking part in an official visit with Trudeau to India, extended the invitation to Atwal to a reception dinner being held Thursday night at the official residence of the high commissioner of Canada to India.

Trudeau has come to India accompanied with his wife Sophie Gregoire and three children -Ella-Grace, Xavier and Hadrien and a delegation of ministers. Sources said Saini had visited Punjab in India and attended Sarbat Khalsa (a congregation of Sikhs) convened by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee.

Apart from diplomatic talks, Trudeau had visited Taj Mahal, Sabarmati Ashram, Golden Temple during his stay in India.

However, a controversy erupted over the invitation to convicted Khalistani terrorist Jaspal Atwal to an event that was held in Mumbai where Trudeau was present. As soon as we received the information, we rescinded it.
