A day after a Khalistani demonstration related to Operation Bluestar at its Vancouver consulate, a float depicting the assassination of late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi featured prominently. The demonstration has prompted India to announce that it will formally raise the issue with Canadian authorities.

The float portrayed an effigy of Indira Gandhi, depicted with bullet wounds including one to the forehead. It also included representations of her assassins, Beant Singh and Satwant Singh, with guns pointed towards her.
