Speaking to news agency ANI, the Trump ‘superfan’ said, ” I want India-America relations to remain strong. Every Friday I fast for his 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.”
Bussa Krishna added that he had told his family members, who object to his devotion to Trump, that just like they worship Lord Shiva, he believes in and worships Trump.
“It took almost a month and 15 labourers to build this statue,” he further said.
The villagers, too, have affectionately started calling him ‘Trump Krishna’ due to his ‘devotion’ of the US President. His house has been given the name of ‘Trump House.’
