There is one man who is eagerly looking forward to POTUS visit to India and no, it is not prime minister Narendra Modi. The United States President Donald Trump’s devoted fan Bussa Krishna is celebrating the visit of his hero to India on February 24-25 by offering prayers to a life-sized idol of Trump at his home. Krishna built the 6-ft statue in the backyard of his house in Jangaon district, Telangana.

According to a report by Agence France Presse (AFP), the ‘devotee’ fan of Trump said after performing the pooja, “Trump sir, you are my god. Welcome to India. I am so happy”. US President and his wife Melania are scheduled to visit India and hold meetings with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a two-day trip from February 24.

The 33-year-old had put forth an appeal to the Modi government to fulfil his wish of meeting his idol during his upcoming India visit. “I want India-America relations to remain strong. Every Friday I fast for Trump’s long life. I also carry his picture and pray to him before commencing any work. I wish to meet him, I request the government to make my dream come true.”

Krishna posts images on his Facebook and Instagram accounts of himself wearing a blue or red T-shirt with the name Trump emblazoned on its front and back, carrying a framed photo of the American leader. “I am praying to God to see that I meet my ‘god’ at least once,” Krishna had said in 2019

According to the report by AFP, Krishna’s friends said villagers have started referring to him affectionately as ‘Trump’ Krishna, due to his devotion to the US President. “Although his real name is Bussa Krishna, after he started praying to Trump, all villagers started calling him Trump Krishna. Krishna’s residence is known as Trump House here. The villagers never objected to it, but appreciated his devotion,” Ramesh Reddy, Bussa’s friend said.
