Donald Trump, Melania Attend State Banquet with Prez Kovind

Amid high-security arrangements and massive decorations, Donald Trump arrived in Ahmedabad to participate in a roadshow with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and jointly address a gathering at the 'Namaste Trump' mega event at Motera cricket stadium. Trump is also scheduled to take a brief halt of about 15 minutes at Sabarmati Ashram during his roadshow from International Airport to the world's largest cricket stadium as the place was the epicentre of the country's freedom struggle during Mahatma Gandhi's 13 years' stay there between 1917 and 1930.
