Apart from his family, six of his ministers — including the four Sikh members of Punjabi origin in the cabinet of 30 — and 18 MPs from his country will accompany Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as he visits the Golden Temple here on February 21 as part of his India visit (February 17-23).

The ministers of Punjabi origin are Harjit Singh Sajjan (defence), Navdeep Singh Bains (innovation, science and economic development), Amarjit Singh Sohi (infrastructure and communities) and Bardish Chagger (small business and tourism), who is also the Leader of the Government in the House of Commons. A 35-member media delegation from Canada will also be with Trudeau.

This information was shared by officials of the local administration after a visit by a Canadian team to review arrangements at the primary Sikh shrine on Thursday. The team comprised at least 12 officials from security agencies, the Canadian high commission and the office of the Canadian PM. It is learnt that this was the third such visit by Canadian officials, though the earlier visits earlier this month were kept secret.
