India Extends Aircraft Assistance to PM Trudeau After Technical Glitch, Canada Refused: Report

Team Parvasi – Inside

In a gesture of goodwill, India offered the services of the Indian Air Force One aircraft to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after his official aircraft encountered a technical glitch during his departure from New Delhi following the G20 Summit, according to sources familiar with the matter. The glitch was related to a specific part that needed replacement, as confirmed by Canada’s National Defence.

Despite India’s offer, the Canadian side decided to wait for a backup aircraft, ultimately declining the Indian assistance. As a result of this unforeseen development, Prime Minister Trudeau and his delegation were forced to extend their stay in the Indian capital by two days.

Prime Minister Trudeau had initially arrived in India for the G20 Summit on Friday, but the technical issue on his Airbus plane on Sunday night prompted the need for an alternative aircraft. Unfortunately, the substitute aircraft, which was expected to arrive in Delhi on Monday night, encountered an unscheduled diversion to London, further prolonging Trudeau’s departure from India.

Earlier in the day, Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Union Minister of State (MoS) for Electronics and Information Technology, conveyed gratitude to Trudeau on behalf of Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his presence at the G20 Summit.

According to reports by Canada-based CBC News, Prime Minister Trudeau continued his work from his hotel in New Delhi while waiting for the resolution of the aircraft issue.

In response to the technical glitch, the Royal Canadian Air Force dispatched a CC-150 Polaris from CFB Trenton to India on Sunday night to retrieve Justin Trudeau and his delegation.

In addition to participating in the G20 Summit, Prime Minister Trudeau held a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the sidelines of the summit in Delhi. During their discussion, PM Modi expressed “strong concerns” about the ongoing “anti-India activities” by extremist elements in Canada, emphasizing the importance of cooperation between the two nations in addressing such threats.

In response, Prime Minister Trudeau stated that Canada would always champion “freedom of expression” while also remaining committed to preventing violence.
