Mumbai, September 29: Amid the ongoing tension between India and Canada, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s office on Wednesday issued a statement denying the alleged claim that his plane was “full of cocaine” when he recently came to India to take part in the G20 Summit in Delhi. “This (is) absolutely false and a troubling example of how disinformation can make its way into media reporting,” his office said in a statement.
The clarification by Justin Trudeau’s office comes after an alleged claim floated by a retired Indian diplomat stated that the Canadian PM’s plane was “full of cocaine” when he arrived in Delhi for the G20 Summit. The retired Indian diplomat reportedly made the claim during a TV discussion. The bizarre claim, which was widely reported by several news channels and media outlets, comes amid the ongoing row between the two countries.
