'My friend, India's friend', says Modi as he welcomes Trump at Motera

New Delhi: The crux of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Namaste Trump' was to showcase the personal bond between him and US President Donald Trump; he called him "my friend, India's friend"."There is so much that we share: Values and ideals, spirit of enterprise and innovation, opportunities and challenges, hopes and aspirations," Modi said.

Connecting the United States and India through two statues -- the Statues of Liberty and the Statue of Unity, PM Modi smartly positioned India as a nation that has much in common with the United States.Modi in his welcome address at the 'Namaste Trump' described the US President Donal Trump's visit as the beginning of a new chapter in Indo-US relationship.

The US President and his family received a rousing welcome from an estimated one lakh ten thousand people gathered at the Motera stadium on Monday, the first day of their two-day state visit to India."The name of this program - Namaste -- it has a very deep meaning... It is one of the oldest languages in the world, a Sanskrit word. Its sense is that not only the person, but also the divinity within him," remarked Modi.

Striking a personal bond between the Trump family and India, Modi stressed the work First Lady Melania Trump is doing and the previous visit of Ivanka Trump to India a couple of years back. "First Lady Melania Trump, it is an honour to have you here. What you have done for a healthy and happy America is getting good results. What you are doing for the children in the society is admirable," said PM Modi.

Modi added, "You say: Be Best! You must have felt that the same sentiment of people is being expressed in today's reception." The US President leaves for Agra from Motera on Monday and later for New Delhi, where his two-day state visit to India concludes on Tuesday.
 

After Trump's trip, Tata calls Motera 'global landmark'

Mumbai: As US President Donald Trump and his family visited the world's largest cricket stadium in Motera, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Stadium, Tata Steel has described the venue of 'Namaste Trump' as one of its 'global landmarks', here on Monday.

Speaking on its association with the SVP Stadium, Tata Steel Vice-President, (Steel Marketing & Sales) Peeyush Gupta said that the company has supplied 11,000 tonnes - or 75 per cent of the total 15,000 tonnes - steel rebars that make up the huge stadium.

Of 11,000 tonnes, Tata Steel supplied 8,400 tonnes in cut-and-bend form or Tiscon Readybuild, plus another 41,000 pieces of couplers and 84,000 threads, for the Motera stadium which has a seating capacity of 100,000."Tiscon Readybuild is a construction solution wherein an off-site rebar processing is done at a specialized service centre enabling supplies of rebars in customized shapes/sizes, thus reducing waste of steel at the site and expediting delivery of projects, said Gupta.

He added that besides the SVP Stadium, Tata Steel has supplied its construction solutions to monuments like Statue of Unity, the longest rail-cum-rail bridge of Assam, the Bogibeel Bridge, the upcoming longest river bridge on River Ganga at Patna, the Rajiv Gandhi Bandra Worli Sea Link in Mumbai, the Signature Bridge in New Delhi, the under-construction Mumbai-Nagpur Expressway and the Metro Rail projects in Mumbai and Kolkata.
