On a weeklong visit to India, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau today arrived at Amritsar international airport to meet Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh after paying obeisance at 'Harmandir Sahib', popularly known as the Golden Temple.
It is noticed that the two heavyweights will meet for a one-on-one meeting at a local hotel and likely to discuss business as well as people-to-people ties.
Tight security arrangements have been made by the Punjab Police in Amritsar with over 1,500 cops being deployed in the holy city. Senior police officials including SSPs and DIGs, besides the SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) team, have also been deployed.
