Power Grid says fear of tripping at 9:09 PM on 5 April baseless

Once the Ministry of Power made its statement, the critics cut a sorry figure, with politicians asking why the prime minister's statements call for clarifications and 'experts' saying this was avoidable

US President Donald Trump has returned to his country after a two-day visit to India. Describing India as a great country, Trump said on Wednesday that his visit was a huge success.

President Trump had reached India on 24 February on his first visit in the last year of his current term.

Trump had received a warm welcome in India, which made him “very nervous”, he said. A delegation of high officials from the US administration and First Lady Melania Trump, his daughter and mentor Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner accompanied him. The delegation included US National Security Adviser Robert O Bryan.

In the three-day tour, the US president visited the Taj Mahal with wife Melania Trump.

As he returned after finishing his 36-hour tour of India, Trump tweeted, “Just landed. India was great, trip very successful…” and soon thereafter got into debates with his opponents in the US on the micro-blogging site.

The US president’s tweets in the past five hours are mostly about his fight with Democrats.

Trump had started his India tour from Ahmedabad on 24 February. He landed directly at Ahmedabad Airport from the US. From where he first went to the Sabarmati Ashram and bowed to Bapu and then arrived at the Motera Stadium for his reception.

People stood on both sides of the road from the airport to the Sabarmati Ashram and from there to the Motera Stadium to welcome the US president. More than 1.25 lakh people at the stadium welcomed Trump.

From there he moved to Agra and came to Delhi in the evening the same day. During the visit, the two countries entered several agreements including defence deals worth $ 3 billion (about Rs 21,000 crore). They agreed to work together in many fields including in energy, inland security, technology and healthcare.

India and the US will soon enter a free trade agreement. Sources say talks between the two countries are on to built an effective counterbalance to China in the Asia-Pacific region.

Trump evaded questions on the internal affairs of India during his trip.
