Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's trip to India has been anything but ordinary. There are rumours flying that our Prime Minister has been royally snubbed by India's PM and it's a bit concerning..
So there was a bit of a mix up when it came to party invitations for our Prime Ministers royal debut in India - and when I say a bit, I mean there was a huge mix up. This colossal mistake was made by Trudeau's office when they accidentally invited Jaspal Atwal, a man that was convicted of attempting to murder an Indian cabinet minister in 1986.
Here's a photo of the formal invitation:
Trudeau's office invited the convicted attempted murderer to Trudeau's official reception held in Delhi. The mistaken invite wasn't discovered until AFTER Atwal actually attended the party on Tuesday night.
Talk about a big mistake. Atwal joined the party unsuspectingly and posed for photos with Sophie Grégoire Trudeau and Infrastructure Minister Amarjeet Sohi.
After the mistake was discovered, Trudeau told reporters that "The individual in question never should have received an invitation and as soon as we found out we rescinded the invitation immediately,". He also stated that they "obviously we take this situation extremely seriously."
It turns out that British Columbia MP Randeep Sarai, was the one who invited Atwal to the guest list. Trudeau has already stated that "the member of parliament who included this individual has and will assume full responsibility for his actions". I wouldn't want to be Sarai right about now.
