'Namaste Trump': Security Beefed Up, Shops Renovation In Full Swing In Agra
According to shopkeepers, the administration at least took notice of their condition because of Trump’s visit. Meanwhile, police officers say that special arrangements have been put in place for the presidential visit. Verification of shops, houses and hotels near the Taj Mahal is being carried out, so that there is no problem of any sort. Police personnel will be stationed at several places and more than 5,000 police personnel will be deployed on the route from the airport to the Taj Mahal. Apart from CCTV cameras, spy cameras have also been installed at several spots, so that everything can be monitored closely. It is evident that after learning from its past experiences, the government does not want to leave any stone unturned this time around. Bylanes and some roads in Agra had been closed during former U.S. President Bill Clinton’ visit to the town, due to which it was eerily quiet everywhere. Maybe that is why Clinton had called Agra a ‘ghost town’.
