“The visit to Taj Mahal by the U.S. President and the First Lady will afford them the opportunity to view the historical monument suitably. Therefore no official engagements or presence of senior dignitaries from the Indian side is envisaged there,” said the official. Some media reports had earlier indicated that Mr. Modi was to accompany the Trumps to Agra.
Mr. Modi will be with Mr. Trump in Ahmedabad, where the Namaste Trump event in honour of the Trumps will be held on February 24. His other engagements with President Trump will take place in Delhi on February 25.
