US President Donald Trump will arrive in Ahmedabad on Monday for the first leg of his maiden India trip during which he will visit Mahatma Gandhi’s Sabarmati Ashram, take part in a roadshow with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and jointly address over one lakh people at a cricket stadium, before heading for Agra to see the iconic Taj Mahal with his wife Melania.
Trump, accompanied by his wife First Lady Melania, daughter Ivanka and a high-level delegation is scheduled to reach Ahmedabad around noon.
Modi along with Trump will address the ‘Namaste Trump’ event in the Motera Stadium, the world’s largest cricket ground with a seating capacity of 1.10 lakh people.
“India awaits your arrival @POTUS @realDonaldTrump! Your visit is definitely going to further strengthen the friendship between our nations,” Modi tweeted.
“See you very soon in Ahmedabad,” he said, responding to a tweet by Trump that he was leaving for India with the US First Lady.
