We’ve had “Howdy Modi.” Now it’s “Namaste Trump.”

That’s how the western Indian city of Ahmedabad is advertising the event where President Donald Trump and India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi are expected to share the stage at a cricket stadium on Feb. 24.

“Get ready to say #NamasteTrump,” the municipal corporation of Ahmedabad, the largest city in Modi’s home state of Gujarat, said in a tweet, as it geared up to welcome the American president on his maiden India visit next week. It also invited people to join “#theBiggestRoadShowEver.”
