Agra ready to welcome Donald Trump


As Agra spruces up ahead of US President Donald Trump’s visit, walls on the route from Kheria airport to the Taj Mahal were painted with images of the American leader on Friday.

Trump is expected to visit Taj Mahal on February 24.

There were paintings of the US flag and the US President with ‘Namaste Trump” written below it.

Other walls had ‘Welcome USA President’ graffiti written.

Earlier in the day, the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) at the Taj Mahal dismissed reports of monkeys causing any trouble during Trump’s visit.

Internal security of the Taj Mahal is provided by the CISF.

Earlier on Thursday, Vasant Kumar Swarnkar, Superintendent Agra Division, Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), had said that the Taj Mahal will remain closed for the general public from 12 noon on February 24 during the US President’s visit.
