Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, often known as the world's most feminist world leaders, is in India next week to keep his promise he made to Indian PM Narendra Modi.

"Wheels up for India and a busy visit, focused on creating good jobs and strengthening the deep connection between the people of our two countries", Trudeau tweeted on Friday before leaving for New Delhi with his family.

Both sides are also expected to deliberate on enhancing cooperation in civil nuclear sector.

Trudeau, accompanied by his wife and three children, will also visit Agra, Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Amritsar.

Trudeau will be accompanied by six ministers, including four Sikhs of Punjabi origin - Harjit Sajjan whom Capt Amarinder had boycotted when he visited previous year while dubbing him as "Khalistani sympathiser", Navdeep Bains, Amarjit Sohi and Bardish Chagger. Captain Amarinder Singh's record of maligning Canadian Cabinet Ministers is learnt to have acted as a driving force behind Trudeau's stance.
