Punjab News: An artist from Amritsar has sketched a huge painting of the US President Donald Trump who will be visiting India on February 24. The US President would be on two-day visit to India along with the first lady of the United States — Melania Trump. The artist has been identified as Jagjot Singh Rubal, a resident of Amritsar.
Rubal has painted a 10 by 7 ft oil painting at his workshop. He said that it took 20 days for him to make the portrait of Donald Trump. Rubal also said that he has made the portrait to present it to the US President if he got an opportunity.
Jagjot Singh Rubal is popular artist as he is famous for painting portraits of prominent personalities. He had also painted the portraits of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Britain’s royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Ahead of Donald Trump’s visit to Taj Mahal in Agra, posters of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, US President and US’ First lady Melania Trump have been put up. The visit to Taj Mahal by the US President and the First Lady would give them the opportunity to view the historical monument suitably.
Hence, no official engagements or presence of senior dignitaries from the Indian side is envisaged in Agra.
Meanwhile, Delhi Government source was quoted by news agency that the names of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy CM Manish Sisodia have been dropped from the school event where Melania Trump was scheduled to visit. The sources also claimed that both were to attend the programme since the school comes under Delhi Government.
