Slums in Ahmedabad to be hidden ahead of Trump visit: reports

Feb 13, 2020 15:09 IST

Ahead of US President Donald Trump's visit to Gujarat, the Ahmedabad Municipal corporation is planning to build a wall for almost half a kilometre, from the airport to the Indira Bridge to hide slums along the way, the Indian Express reported. The wall is likely to be 6-7 feet high and is being built to mask slums on the route Trump and PM Modi will take for their roadshow on February 24th. More than 500 kutcha houses with an estimated population of 2,500, are part of decades-old Dev Saran or Saraniyavaas slum area.
