India hastily builds wall along slum ahead of Trump visit

Trump, who has pledged to build a wall along America's border with Mexico to stop illegal aliens and drugs from entering the USA, is visiting India on February 24-25 in a bid to smooth relations strained by trade disputes.

Expressing his dissatisfaction with India, Trump, who adheres to the "America First" policy, said, "We're not treated very well by India".

"The Trump administration has been needlessly combative with India on trade and investment issues, complicating an already hard dimension of bilateral relationship". Though the people of Ahmedabad had witnessed the visits of Chinese President and Japanese Prime Minister in recent past, but the visit of US President is much different from previous. The people of his village have nicknamed him as Trump Krishna and his residence is famously known as Trump House.

Trump will have stops in Ahmedabad and New Delhi during his two-day visit. The couple will be welcomed by President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Modi.

Trade tensions between the two countries have escalated since the Trump administration levied tariffs on steel and aluminium from India.

The Motera stadium can seat some 100,000 and is said to be the world's largest cricket stadium.

US President Donald Trump is scheduled to touch down at Sardar Vallabhai Patel worldwide airport in Ahmedabad on February 24. Both Modi and Trump have met five times in last eight months and it was "not necessary" to have a "big ticket" announcement whenever they have their meeting, said sources.

At the Motera Stadium, the US President will speak at "Namaste Trump" event with close to 1.25 lakh people in attendance.

A government source told WION that "both sides want to reach an understanding with outcomes that balance both sides" and USA and India "don't want to rush into the deal as the issues are complicated with many decisions having an impact on people's lives and long term economic consequences". The main segment of the visit will take place in Delhi, though an option of having a short visit by the president to another city is being explored.

India is placing high hopes on Trump's visit, and local authorities have been trying their best to make a good impression.

There was no public response from the Indian government on Trump's indication that there was no trade deal in the offing.
