Donald Trump in India: US Presi nt to inaugurate world's biggest cricket stadium



AHMEDABAD: US Presi nt Donald Trump will inaugurate the world's largest cricket stadium when he arrives in Ahmedabad, the home base of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Monday at the start of a two-day visit aimed at smoothing ties strained by trade disputes.


Making his first offi al trip to the world's largest de acy , Trump is also expected to visit the humble abode of India's independence hero Mahatma Gandhi in Ahmedabad.


The leaders of , Japan and Israel have all visited Ahmedabad since Modi became India's prime minister. It is the biggest city in Gujarat, the western state where Modi made his mark as chief minister before his (BJP) swept to power in 2014.


If his Indian hosts can help it, Trump probably won't see a slum as they've ordered for a 400-metre wall to be built along his route to block the view of where poor people live.


Authorities in Ahmedabad expect to spend around 800 million to 850 million Indian rupees ($11-12 million) on preparations for the visit by the American presi nt that is likely to last around three hours, two go nment offi als with direct knowledge of the plans said.


The sum is equivalent to about 1.5% of the annual budget for the Home Ministry in Gujarat.


Security-related costs, with more than 12,000 police officers expected to be deployed, will account for almost half the expense, said the offi als, who declined to be named as they are not authorised to speak publicly about the visit.


Ahmedabad municipal commissioner Vijay Nehra, the city's top civic offi al, said that authorities had already spent around 300 million rupees ($4.2 million) on widening roads and improving infrastructure around the new cricket stadium.


With capacity for 110,000 spectators, the Mera Stadium will dislodge the Melbourne Cricket Ground as the world's largest cricket stadium.

Modi is saying poorer became rich under his re gie and he wants to hide those poor people and spend 100 crores on US presi nt. Atleast he would have spent those money on building houses he would have received some prayers from people.

It's a crime to spend 800-850 million Rupees for a 2-days visit of Trump. The same amount could have made a difference in the lives of the poor that Modi is trying to hide from Trump.



Abhijit Dey • Agart • 3 days ago

Sometime I feel Modi is focusing on Gujrat rather then on whole India. All the projects in Gujrat are on fast track.
