Mr Trudeau is scheduled to pay obeisance at the Golden Temple along with his family. A thick security blanket was put in place in and around the Golden Temple for the visit. Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh is slated to welcome the Canadian PM in Amritsar. Former deputy chief minister of Punjab and president of the SAD Sukhbir Badal and his wife Union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal would receive the Canadian PM at the main gate of Golden Temple.
