Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's first official visit to India is generating plenty of publicity, but for all the wrong reasons.

On Wednesday, he will meet the chief minister of the northern Indian state of Punjab who has in the past said he was concerned about Sikh groups in Canada trying to revive an independent state called Khalistan. "We support one united India", Trudeau was quoted as having said in a reply to a query from a Canadian journalist in Mumbai. "The lion's share of that Canadian investment is Brookfield's acquisition of a Mumbai office complex now owned by an insolvent Indian company".

The meeting was held at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel.

"It is an economic imperative.We want a pledge to say that we would encourage more and more women participation in every field of activity", she said.
