Agra District Magistrate Prabhu N. Singh told the media that 3,000 artistes will present cultural programmes to welcome Trump
Trump will reach the Taj Mahal's East Gate from the airport, covering a distance of 15 km.
The artistes will present cultural programmes in around 12 places that fall between the airport and the East Gate of the Taj.
Sources said the Adityanath government is keen to showcase the art and culture of Braj, Bundelkhand, Purvanchal and Awadh regions. The artistes will enact the roles of Radha-Krishna and present other cultural performances.
They will also perform the 'Kala Alha' and 'Nautanki' of Bundelkhand, and the Ramlila of Purvanchal.
The artistes will arrive in Agra on February 23, a day before Trump's visit. All of them are from Uttar Pradesh.
