Congress dismisses Modi’s claim of being the first PM to visit Canada in 42 years

Modi

By NewsGram Staff Writer

Expressing strong disapproval of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s claim that he is the first Indian premier in 42 years to visit Canada, the Congress on Friday reminded him of ex-prime minister Manmohan Singh’s state visit there in 2010.

Underlining former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s official three-day visit at the invitation of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper in June, 2010, Congress spokesperson Anand Sharma said, “On (Stephen) Harper’s invitation, Manmohan Singh went to Canada in 2010. It was a state visit, and the two released a joint statement after their bilateral engagements.”

The joint statement released by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on June 27, 2010 said, “Prime Minister Manmohan Singh visited Canada at the invitation of Prime Minister Stephen Harper. During his visit, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh participated in G20 Toronto Summit and held bilateral discussions with Prime Minister Stephen Harper.”

The controversial assertion of being the first Indian Prime Minister to visit Canada in 42 years was made by Modi on Thursday, during the last leg of his three-nation visit to Canada.
