Donald Trump to visit Sabarmati during India visit in February: Vijay Rupani
New Delhi : US President Donald Trump will be visiting the Sabarmati Riverfront in Gujarat during his India trip in February, the state Chief Minister Vijay Rupani announced on Wednesday.
Addressing an election rally in Delhi's Shastri Nagar, Rupani made the announcement.
"In the entire Asia, the Sabarmati river has become the cleanest river which was ensured by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Prominent leaders like Japan and Israel prime ministers also visited the riverfront and got surprised to see it."
"US President Trump will also come (to India) in February and he will also visit the riverfront," the Gujarat chief minister said. However he did not specify the dates.
Earlier this month, the reports had suggested that the Indian and US authorities are engaged in planning Donald Trump's trip to India.
"Both sides are in discussions to finalise the dates," a source said.
Trump's two-day visit to India could take place on February 24-26.
India had invited Trump to grace the Republic Day parade as the chief guest last year but the US president could not come due to scheduling issues.
