Not here for petty politics: Canadian Minister Sajjan on 'Khalistani' allegations

Commenting upon him being called a Khalistani sympathizer, Canadian Defence Minister Harjit Singh Sajjan on Tuesday said that such remarks do hurt him but he is not on India visit for 'petty politics.' "It does hurt but not here for petty politics, my actions speak for me," said the Canadian Minister. "I have been given many labels throughout my life and your actions define who you are. I don't personally suck into the internal politics of any province or nations," he added. The visiting leader's comments came after Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh described him as a 'Khalistani sympathizer' last week. Amarinder Singh had also said that he would not meet the Canadian Minister on his India visit. Harjit Singh Sajjan is presently on a seven-day visit to India.
