Agra, Feb 21 (UNI) Paintings of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Trump have been put up, along with slogans like 'Radhe-Radhe Trump' and 'Jai Shree Krishna Trump' in the city of Taj Mahal, on their visit to the city on February 24.
Preparations are underway in Agra in full swing, to welcome US president Donald Trump and his wife Melania at the Taj Mahal, during their visit to the 338-year-old mausoleum.
The walls from the airport in the city to the Taj Mahal have been painted with depictions of different facets of the Indian culture.

Official sources here on Saturday said Trump and Melania, along with their family members, would be welcomed with a peacock dance performance by 350 artistes at the airport.
As many as 3,000 dancers have also been roped in to perform at 16 spots on the route that leads to the mausoleum, while another 500 artistes would dress up as Radha and Krishna.
Thousands of school children with US-India flags in their hands will greet the couple on their way to the Taj Mahal.
The Municipal Corporation in Agra is getting the walls around Taj Mahal painted, while machines have been engaged to clean up the roads leading to the mausoleum.
