Mumbai: Panning Donald Trump's visit to India, the Shiv Sena on Monday said the 36-hour-long sojourn of the U.S. president in the country won't make "an iota of difference" in the lives of poor and middle-class Indians.
Trump has called Modi "a great man and leader for the people of India", saying the people of India "are lucky to have him!" Both Delhi and Ahmedabad will see major traffic curbs for the visit, and hotels in these two cities have been brought under extensive security cover.
Traffic in some parts of the national capital on Tuesday (February 25) will be affected in view of US President Donald Trump's visit.
Surprisingly, Trump didn't mention Gandhiji in his note, but thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a "wonderful visit". "We will likely have discussion with the Prime Minister about these concerns and continue the discussion beyond the visit".
Well, during his speech, Donald Trump mispronounced the name of cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar.
For the uninitiated, a few days ago, as everyone awaited the arrival of the US President for the Namaste Trump event, there were many memes created to welcome the guest. And it remains a great gift to the world.
Trump also gave up trying to pronounce the name of Hindu monk Swami Vivekananda, and laughed it off. Modi has promised Trump an epic turnout that Trump has bragged about for days. But in reality, Modi has more than 44 million followers on the social media platform while Trump trails second with 27.5 million followers.
Yet when the two sides were very close to clinching the mini deal, a source reveals that the USA negotiators said they wanted to put it on hold and go in for a more ambitious deal later.
