Donald Trumps India visit: Key India-US defence deals in offing?

Mathura: The Uttar Pradesh Irrigation Department has released 500 cusecs of water into the Yamuna from the Ganganahar in Bulandshahr to improve the river's "environmental condition" in Agra, ahead of US President Donald Trump's visit, officials said on Tuesday.

"We are not treated very well by India but I happen to like Prime Minister Modi a lot", Trump had reportedly told the reporters.

Its members say Trump shares their hatred of "Islamic extremism", and it has drawn attention for boisterous celebrations of his birthday, including pretending to feed cake to photos of his face. So it's going to be very exciting.

This is right after Trump said he really "likes Modi", reported Bloomberg.

Asked, if the deal is stuck, the source said, "not correct to say India-US trade deal is stuck".

The US is the second largest trade partner for India after China and as much as $142.6 billion is at stake. Dubbed "Namaste Trump" or "Hello Trump", the event follows the "Howdy Modi" carnival hosted by the US President for the Indian PM in Houston, Texas, last September. The couple will be welcomed by President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Modi.

But while he's in the world's largest democracy, Trump won't see its infamous poverty.

A half-kilometer (1,640-foot) brick wall has been hastily erected in India's Gujarat point out ahead of a check out by U.S. President Donald Trump, with critics declaring it was constructed to block the look at of a slum spot inhabited by extra than 2,000 people today. The people of Ahmedabad are eagerly waiting to welcome the US President Donald Trump and US first lady Melania from Airport to Motera Stadium.

The 33-year-old actor said: "I feel like a fish in a glass bowl that doesn't quite know which way to go". There's a new Batman movie out next year, which means two things.

The video also flashes images of PM Modi and Trump at the "Howdy, Modi" event which was held in Houston in the USA a year ago. That rally attracted 50,000 people.

To get Trump on-board, New Delhi has extended an olive branch of sorts.

City officials deny the wall was built to hide the slum, saying it was necessary for "security reasons" and also part of a "beautification and cleanliness drive".

Trump has built up a fan base in India among some Hindu nationalists drawn to his hardline rhetoric towards Muslims.

The two have warred over everything from tariffs on farm goods to Harley Davidson motorbikes and price caps on medical devices and India's new rules on local data storage.

The Trump administration retaliated by removing India from a decades-old preferential trade program.

Speaking on the Trump visit, Shringla said the US President would be accompanied by a high-level delegation.

The US had approved the sale of 24 multi-role MH-60 "Romeo" Seahawk helicopters to India at an estimated cost of US $2.4 billion in April previous year. We will do that I don't know if will probably be doable earlier than the U.S. election.
