Canadian Defence Minister Harjit Singh Sajjan on Monday began his maiden visit to India during which he will meet top Indian leaders, an official statement said.
In Punjab, Sajjan will visit the Golden Temple and civil society organisations, while in Chandigarh, he will inaugurate the new office of the Consulate-General of Canada. In 2011, Mr. Sajjan, a decorated police officer who has served in Afghanistan and Bosnia and commanded the British Columbia regiment of reserves, had been severely criticised for reportedly attending a "remembrance" ceremony in Surrey that included pictures of Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, and other Khalistani militants, according to local newspapers.
"There were, in fact, five ministers in the Justin Trudeau government who were Khalistani sympathisers and I will not have any truck with them", he declared.

Before his Punjab visit, Sajjan is scheduled to meet Union finance, defence and corporate affairs minister Arun Jaitley and external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj, besides other ministers and government officials.
