Amid Concerns Over Popularity Dip, NDP's Jagmeet Singh Sends an Inclusive Message to Hindu Community

Canadian MP Jagmeet Singh

BRAMPTON: The New Democratic Party (NDP) of Canada, currently part of the government, is actively addressing concerns related to declining popularity and a challenging situation following recent statements made by Gurpatwant Singh Pannu, which were perceived as threats to Hindus. In a bid to mitigate any potential damage, prominent NDP Member of Parliament (MP) Jagmeet Singh conveyed a heartfelt message to the Hindu community, emphasizing that Canada is their home and they deserve to live there. This comes as the country is amidst a popularity survey ahead of the upcoming election.

MP Jagmeet Singh, a notable figure in the NDP, took to his social media platform to extend a reassuring message to Hindus. He emphasized that Canada is a home for all its citizens and underlined the values of compassion and kindness that Canadians hold. Singh strongly stated that no individual or statement could limit the nation's core principles of inclusivity and unity.

As the election approaches, a popularity survey is underway in Canada, revealing interesting insights. According to the survey, 40 percent of Canadians prefer Justin Trudeau's rival, Pierre Poilievre, as the Prime Minister, while Trudeau stands at 31 percent. The New Democratic Party (NDP), a supporter of Trudeau's party, is witnessing a decline in its popularity, with Jagmeet Singh's approval rating dropping by 4 percent to 22 percent.

In recent times, diplomatic tensions have risen between India and Canada. This was instigated by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's expression of concern, suggesting potential Indian involvement in the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijhar. As a result, India took strong action, expelling an Indian diplomat and suspending visa services for Canada until further notice.
