Canada's intelligence agency has made very serious allegations against China. The intelligence agency says that China had secretly interfered in Canada's two general elections. Canadian intelligence agency CSIS says that concrete evidence of suspected interference by China has also been found. 

The investigation report of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) says that China has interfered in the general elections of 2019 and 2021. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberal Party had won these elections. Following the opposition's anger over China's role in Canadian elections, Trudeau had formed a commission on foreign interference.

Canada's intelligence agency CSIS has prepared a document on foreign interference in elections, in which it has been claimed that China interfered in the Canadian general elections in 2019 and 2021. There is solid evidence of foreign interference in both of these cases. China-backed or China-backed stakeholders were supported in these elections. PM Justin Trudeau's office has also been informed in this regard. 

However, China has denied allegations of interference in Canadian politics. Erin O'Toole, who is leading the Conservative Party's campaign in the 2021 elections in Canada, had expressed the fear of China's interference in the elections. He had said that his party had lost nine seats due to Chinese interference. 

Trudeau will appear before the commission on Wednesday

Intelligence analysts and the Conservative Party say that the Trudeau government has not done enough to deal with Chinese interference. Trudeau has to appear before this commission on Wednesday. 

Let us tell you that the Conservative Party is generally more strict on China than the Liberal Party. The Conservative Party had publicly criticized China in the 2021 elections. A mirror was shown to China regarding the atrocities being committed against Uyghur Muslims in China. 

Let us tell you that the Chinese Embassy has not yet given any reaction to this report on CSIS. About 17 lakh people of Chinese origin live in Canada.

What were the allegations against India?

Canada's Justin Trudeau government had made very serious allegations against India in the month of February. India was accused of possible interference in Canada's elections. 

A few days ago, the Canadian intelligence agency had alleged that countries like India, Pakistan, China, and Russia had interfered in the elections held in the country in 2019 and 2021, which is being investigated. CSIS documents alleged that the Indian government had tried to interfere in the 2021 elections through an Indian government agent in Canada. India was also accused of interfering in Canada's 2021 elections. 

The CSIS document states that the Indian government targeted electoral districts that had low population density because of India's perception that a portion of Indian-origin Canadian voters were sympathetic to the Khalistani movement or to pro-Pakistan political stances. India reacted strongly to this and termed these allegations as baseless.

The Indian government had called the allegations baseless.

Responding to these allegations of Canada, the Indian Government had termed these allegations as baseless. Foreign Ministry spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal had said that we have seen media reports about the Canadian Commission's investigation. We strongly reject all baseless allegations of Indian interference in Canadian elections. He had said that it is not the policy of the Indian government to interfere in the democratic processes of other countries. The real issue is that Canada is interfering in our internal affairs.

Diplomatic tension continues between Canada and India

Diplomatic tension between Canada and India has been continuing since last year. In September last year, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had talked about India's role in the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar. Speaking in the Parliament of Canada, he said that Canadian security agencies are actively investigating allegations of a link between the Indian government and the murder of Canadian citizen Hardeep Singh Nijjar.

Diplomatic tension between the two countries arose when Canada expelled a senior Indian diplomat accusing India of having a hand in the murder of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Nijjar. After which India had also issued an order to a top Canadian diplomat to leave the country within five days.

A few days later, India had ordered Canada to reduce the number of its diplomats, citing interference and excess numbers of Canadian diplomats in internal matters. After which Canada had recalled its 41 additional diplomats present in India.
