Romantic humdingers will fill the air at the State dinner India holds for Donald and Melania Trump at Rashtrapati Bhavan in Delhi tonight.
According to a report in a section of the Indian media, when POTUS (President of the United States) and FLOTUS (First Lady of the United States) sit down to a ceremonial dinner at Rashtrapati Bhavan on Tuesday evening, the hors d’oeuvres will be brought out to the strains of Eric Clapton’s ‘You look wonderful tonight’ and Elton John’s ‘Can you feel the love tonight’.
The elite crowd at the event will also be treated to such eternal favourites as Rod Stewart’s ‘Have I told you lately that I love you,’ Elvis Presley’s ‘I can’t help falling in love with you,’ The Beatles’ ‘Hey Jude’ and Michael Jackson’s ‘We are the World’. The Navy band will play these numbers during President Ram Nath Kovind’s banquet. There will even be renditions of songs from Hindi films of the sixties and seventies.
On the other hand, after being briefly closed due to the visit of Donald Trump, Delhi Metro has reopened entry and exit gates to and from Mandi House metro station.
A security update from DMRC said, not just Mandi House, entry and exit gates of ITO and Delhi Gate have also been reopened.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Traffic Police tweeted, "From forenoon till around 4 pm on February 25, traffic is likely to remain heavy in the areas of Moti Bagh, Chanakyapuri, India Gate, areas around ITO, Delhi Gate and adjoining areas of Central and New Delhi. Necessary traffic diversions as per the ground situation may also be enforced."
This is keeping in mind US President Trump's bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Hyderabad House.
Due to US First Lady Melania Trump's visit to the Sarvodaya School in South Moti Bagh area, traffic restrictions were clamped on Mahatma Gandhi Road as well.
