NEW DELHI: US President Donald Trump will visit the Sabarmati Riverfront in Gujarat during his India trip in February, the state Chief Minister Vijay Rupani said on Wednesday.

Rupani said this while addressing an election rally in north Delhi's Shastri Nagar.

"In entire Asia, the Sabarmati river has become the cleanest river which was ensured by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Prominent leaders like Japan and Israel prime ministers also visited the riverfront and got surprised to see it".

"US President Trump will also come (to India) in February and he will also visit the riverfront," the Gujarat chief minister said.

However, he did not specify the dates. Earlier this month, government sources said Indian and US officials were engaged in talks to finalise the dates for Trump's visit to India.
