Ottawa: On the occasion of 75th anniversary of India’s Independence, Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today congratulated the Indians around the world on the country’s Independence Day.
PM Trudeau said that seventy-five years ago, India gained its independence and became the world’s largest democracy. Today, we’re celebrating that anniversary and the tremendous impact that India’s people and culture have around the world. We joins the people of India and Indo-Canadian communities to celebrate this milestone anniversary.
In a statement Trudeau said,“Canada and India have a strong, longstanding, and vibrant relationship built on shared values like democracy, and deep people-to-people ties, with over 1.4 million people of Indian heritage calling Canada home. Their many important contributions have made, and continue to make, our country stronger, more diverse, and inclusive.”
