More than 100,000 people gathered at the Namaste Trump rally to celebrate the American president, Donald Trump.
After another 30-minute drive, the motorcade arrived at the newly constructed Sardar Patel Stadium, also known as Motera Stadium, the largest cricket stadium in the world with a seating capacity of 110,000.
Thousands of people along the route albeit clearly far from the “six to 10 million people” announced by POTUS during his rally in Colorado Springs on Thursday.
As the motorcade was approaching the stadium, signs along the road read: “Two great democracies at the world’s biggest cricket stadium”.
The motorcade passed in front of a marching band on camels.
The two leaders are to participate in an event dubbed “Namaste Trump” which rivals the “Howdy Modi” which took place in Houston during PM Modi’s visit to the US in September 2019.
The two leaders got a raucous welcome when they entered the stadium which appeared to be packed at capacity.
First Lady Melania Trump also got a very warm welcome from the crowd.
Thousands of people were wearing white hats which read “Namaste Trump”.
The speeches are open press.
After PM Modi’s welcome remarks, POTUS took the stage under a heavy sun 1:55 pm5pm.
His speech lasted 27 minutes.

Towards the end of the speeches, there were many empty seats, especially in the upper part of the stadium, in the sections facing the sun.
