In a post on X, which was previously on Twitter, Singh, who is the MP for Burnaby South, wrote, “Together, we have the power to challenge the status quo. Justin Trudeau and Pierre Poillivre are not interested in change. Have – their corporate donors won’t allow it.

Making his case, Singh said he did not have the support of billionaires. “I’m not backed by billionaires – I’m fighting for you.”

Singh attached a video to the post in which he was seen talking to students, saying, “The youth are going to inherit the planet, they are going to inherit the country, so they matter. Your voices don’t just matter for the future, they matter today, and we need to take that seriously. So I’m really interested in seriously engaging with young people and giving them hope.”

Talking about his party, Singh added that all the “big changes” like old age security, pensions, Medicare came when the New Democrats were in power. “Establishment parties are not interested in making the big changes that we need to deal with the problems we are facing,” he said. It’s not in their DNA, it’s not what they do. But the New Democrats are different. Our goal is to make these changes possible.”

Jagmeet Singh on the diplomatic dispute between India and Canada

Tensions between India and Canada have risen since Trudeau accused the Indian government of involvement in Najjar’s murder. Canada and the United States have said the allegations are supported by the Five Eyes intelligence alliance, which includes the United States, Britain, Australia and New Zealand in addition to Canada. The alliance has described these allegations as serious.

However, Trudeau has faced backlash from Canadian MPs and world leaders, including Indian diplomats, for not disclosing information or providing evidence on the matter.

Speaking on the allegations made by Trudeau, Singh said on Tuesday that he had received an intelligence briefing on Trudeau’s claims by Jody Thomas, the Canadian prime minister’s national security adviser. Singh said that after learning more about the matter, he could confirm that there was “clear evidence” of Indian government involvement.

According to the Canadian News Organization Global NewsSingh said, “The briefing was such that I can confirm what the Prime Minister has shared publicly, that Canada has clear intelligence that it has the following cases: that A Canadian citizen was murdered on Canadian soil and a foreign government was involved. That’s very serious. That intelligence is something that I think is very credible.

Singh told reporters that he was able to request the briefing after receiving security clearance to review the foreign intrusion data, which was collected by former special representative David Johnston. He also claimed that Trudeau told him and Canadian opposition leader Pierre Poilever before sharing the allegations publicly.
