I have more Sikhs in cabinet than Modi: Canada PM Justin Trudeau


Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, known for his witty repartees, told an American audience in Washington that he has more Sikhs in his Cabinet than Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The quip came when Trudeau was taking 10 questions from students at the American University in northwest Washington during his state visit to the US.

During the half-an-hour session at the university on Friday, a student named Jahan from the Punjab province of Pakistan told Trudeau that it was really great to see so many Punjabis in his cabinet.

“I have more Sikhs in my cabinet than Modi does,” Trudeau was quoted as saying by the Canadian daily ‘The Star’.

44-year-old Trudeau, who assumed office in November last year, surprised one and all by including four Sikh-Canadians in his Cabinet.
