The US President and the First Lady arrived at the Raj Ghat after the ceremonial reception by President of India Ram Nath Kovind at the Rashtrapati Bhawan. Here, the POTUS inspected the Guard of Honour. After paying their tributes at the Raj Ghat, the POTUS and the FLOTUS have headed to the Hyderabad House.
As of now, Melania Trump is at a government school in Nanakpura, Delhi. Union Minister Smriti Irani has reportedly decided not to accompany the FLOTUS in order to keep the visit apolitical. Here, the FLOTUS will witness various activities that are a part of the 'happiness curriculum' at the school.
Melania will spend about an hour at the school. She will take a tour of the school, go to different classes, interact with students and witness activities that are a part of the 'happiness curriculum'. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal also took to Twitter to say that this is a "great day for our teachers, students and Delhiites."
