TRUMP TO VISIT INDIA .. US president to be in India on February 24 and 25; be in New Delhi and Ahmedabad with Melania

NEW DELHI: President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump will visit India on February 24-25, the White House has announced. This is the first time that Trump will be visiting India after he took over as US president. He had visited India previously on business and personal trips, and spoken highly of India. 

Trump and Melania will spend considerable time in Delhi’s power circuit, but will also make a prominent visit to Ahmedabad, the commercial hub of Gujarat, and share time and space with Prime Minister Narendra Modi there too.

The White House said the decision was made after a phone call between Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the weekend. The two agreed the trip will “further strengthen the United States-India strategic partnership and highlight the strong and enduring bonds between the American and Indian people.”

Modi, who took power in 2014, had held informal meets with world leaders in in his native Guajrat state in the past too. The first was Chinese President Xi Jinping, who was taken around by Modi in places like Sabarmati Ashram. In his second visit to India, Xi was hosted in Mahabalipuram in Tamil Nadu.  ==IHN-NN
