It seems that Ivanka's praise for Hyderabad was something more than diplomatic courtesies.
Ivanka Trump was in complete awe of iconic city of Hyderabad when she visited here last month. Daughter and official advisor to US President Donald Trump, Ivanka said she was feeling “wonderful” for being in the historical city of Hyderabad. It seems that Ivanka’s praise was something more than diplomatic courtesies. Now, she has written a letter to K Chandrashekhar Rao. In her letter, Ivanka writes she is touched with the hospitality provided to her by Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao. Ivanka described her experience as “incredible and inspiring” and even promised to make another trip to India. She wrote: “Dear chief minister Rao, Thank you for your warm hospitality during my visit to Hyderabad for the GES summit. It was an incredible and inspiring experience. I also want to thank you for the exquisite gift that you presented to me at the Falakhnuma Palace. I am deeply touched by your thoughtful gesture and by the warmth of the people of Telangana. I look forward to returning to India in the near future. Warmly, Ivanka Trump”
Well, Ivanka has been praising Hyderabad and expressing her love for the city for quite a long time now. In her last speech, the US model-turned-politician had hailed Hyderabad’s legacy from Biryani, Pearls, Satya Nadella (Microsoft CEO), T-Hub (or Telangana Hub) and Tea. Speaking of the city’s tech hub – Ivanka said tech centres of the famous city would soon become more popular than the Hyderabadi biriyani. Delivering a well-researched speech, Ivanka drew an analogy between city’s tech hub and world-famous Hyderabadi Biryani.
“It’s wonderful to be in this ancient city brimming with transformative technology – now, your tech centres may even outshine your world-famous Biryani,” she said. Ivanka also mentioned Microsoft’s Satya Nadella. “CEOs like Microsoft’s Satya Nadella went to school right here in Hyderabad. Just a few kilometres away, T-hub’s brand new facility is set to open next year – and will become the largest incubator in Asia,” she said. She had termed Hyderabad as the ‘city of Pearls’.
