#Tamils4JustinTrudeau: Amid 'cold' response to Canada PM, Tamilians on Twitter are losing their minds about him

On his visit to India, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau has gone to a lot of places. He has been to the Sabarmati Ashram in Gujarat, Golden Temple in Amritsar and Jama Masjid in New Delhi.

He has met Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani, Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis and Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh.

Yet, for some reason, the ones who are most excited (at least on Twitter) about Trudeau's visit to India seem to be Tamilians.

#Tamils4JustinTrudeau is trending on Twitter. This fact becomes stranger when takes into consideration that Trudeau has neither visited Tamil Nadu nor said anything particularly focused on the Tamil community.

In January, he had wished the Tamil community on the occasion of Pongal. Canada had also officially declared that it will celebrate the culture of the Tamil community every January.

But apart from that, Trudeau has not done or said anything this year even remotely connected to the Tamil community.

The internet, however, is a strange place. And clearly, people on Twitter do not need any particular reason to get excited about events.

>Wait, what?

He appears to be in no hurry to head back to Canada, so who knows? Maybe a surprise Tamil Nadu visit is something Trudeau can also squeeze into his India tour.
