Trump Village unveiled in Haryana
In an unusual gesture to the American president ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's trip to Washington, a huge billboard declaring "Welcome to Trump Village" in Hindi and English, accompanied with a beaming portrait of the US president was unveiled in Marora village in the northern state of Haryana.
Large posters of Trump adorned with marigold flowers were placed throughout the village of mainly mud-brick houses for a renaming ceremony, which was presided over by village heads and an Indian charity.
But despite the bold lettering greeting visitors at the arched village gateway, the name change is not official or sanctioned by the government.
