US President Donald Trump delivered another call today, assuming he has been narrated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi that 10 million people are presumed to turn up along a 22-km-long road in Ahmedabad when he lands in India next week.
Mr Trump’s latest claim comes despite the Ahmedabad municipal body expecting much lower numbers of the masses.
Why has the US President kept this stubbornness..?
Now they are stories going is on that Trump visit to India is just the public gathering or Crowd turnout
- I hear they’re going to have 10 million people. They say anywhere from six to 10 million people are going to be showing up along the route to one of the largest stadiums in the world, the largest cricket stadium in the world,” Mr Trump said at a packed re-election campaign rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
- PM Modi and President Trump will travel on a 22-km-long road on February 24. Prime Minister Modi said we will have 10 million people to greet you. Here’s my problem, we have a packed house. We have a lot of people, thousands of people who couldn’t get in. It’s going to look like peanuts from now on. I’ll never be satisfied with the crowd if we have 10 million in India,” the US President said at the rally in the US.
It is reported that 2.6 billion dollars of Indian and US Seahawk helicopters may be traded during Trump’s visit. Two authorisations informed of the matter have said that the deal could be signed on the next week’s visit to Trump. Nevertheless, it is not known whether there will be any other case deals between the two nations on this visit.
According to stories, the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) supervised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has confirmed the purchase of 24 MH-60R Seahawk maritime helicopters.
The purchase of these helicopters was approved by the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) in 2018 itself. The deal will be done under Foreign Military Sales (FMS), which may be announced after the bilateral talks between the two countries on February 25.
Why India needs these helicopters
- It is known that MH-60R helicopters will not only have torpedoes but also anti-submarine missiles. In this package, India will also get training, support, spares and ground-to-air weapons.
- These helicopters will be delivered in the next five years after the contract is signed. These aircraft will replace the British Sea King helicopters.
On 19 Feb 2020 Trump, said about his visit to India – “We can do trade deals with India but I am keeping a big deal for later.” Trump said that there will be a trade deal with India, but cannot say when it will happen. Trump also said that a trade deal between the two countries could happen before the US presidential election in November.
President Trump will arrive with PM Modi at the open-press “Namaste Trump” event at the newly-built Sadar Vallabhhai Patel Stadium at Motera, said to be the world’s largest cricket stadium with an inclination of over 100,000.
“People-to-people communication has always been an important part of India-US relations and making the event a part of US President Donald Trump’s visit is a reflection of that,” BJP leader Ram Madhav had told news agency ANI on Tuesday.
