Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) President Sharad Pawar took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of US President Donald Trump’s visit to India. 

Pawar slammed PM Narendra Modi over Ahmadabad being made the centre point of Trump’s visit to India which is scheduled next week. The NCP chief taunted that Trump is the latest foreign high-ranking official to be taken to Ahmadabad over the last five years. 

Earlier, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and others were taken to Ahmedabad by PM Modi. Ahmedabad is the largest city in Gujarat which is Narendra Modi’s home state.

When asked about US President Donald Trump’s upcoming visit, Pawar stated that if Prime Minister Narendra Modi feels that Ahmedabad is the best place to showcase “we should be happy for it”. 

“After Modi became the Prime Minister of India, all foreign dignitaries were taken to Ahmedabad. Earlier, they used to visit Agra, Delhi, Mumbai and Bangaluru. It is a good thing if the Prime Minister feels that Ahmedabad is the best place to showcase,” Sharad Pawar said. 

Taking a dig at the Ahmedabad Corporation’s decision to reportedly build a wall to hide the slums, Pawar tauntingly said that the wall is being constructed to hide the slums from President Trump. 

“How can President Trump be allowed to see the slums? You have to build a wall to hide it and click some photo there or else what will people say about Ahmedabad, Gujarat and Narendra Modi?” Sharad Pawar said.

In Ahmedabad’s Sardarnagar, a 500-meter-long wall is being constructed because the area has several slums. During Trump’s visit, his convoy is expected to cross the area.
