Along with visiting the Taj Mahal, he could also visit the banks of the Yamuna river. In such a situation, to improve the river's environmental condition, the Uttar Pradesh Irrigation Department has released 500 cusecs water into the river. According to Brij Khandelwal, a convenor who campaigns for rivers, President Trump will only see the Taj Mahal and not the city of Agra, and the administration is cleaning up the area he is supposed to visit. The Taj Mahal got its identity because of the Yamuna and today the river is fighting for existence. The filth of the entire city is accumulating in the Yamuna and effective techniques should be adopted so that the river is saved. Meanwhile, officers of the Municipal Corporation, who are engaged in sprucing up the city, say that preparations to welcome President Trump are underway in various parts of the city. Screens have been installed on roadsides so that when his convoy passes by, people can welcome him. It’s evident that the government is making several efforts to present a different picture of India to President Trump but it is not taking any concrete steps to provide relief to people dealing with problems amid all this.
