“The visit to Taj Mahal by the U.S. President and the First Lady will afford them the opportunity to view the historical monument suitably. Therefore no official engagements or presence of senior dignitaries from the Indian side is envisaged there,” said the official. Some media reports had earlier indicated that Mr. Modi was to accompany the Trumps to Agra.
