Indian-origin spends Rs 38,000 for 1-night stay at hotel to meet Trump

| | Singapore

An Indian-origin man from Malaysia went to Singapore and spent a whopping USD 573 to put up at a luxury hotel for one night so that he could get a chance to meet US President Donald Trump ahead of his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Maharaj Mohan, a 25-year-old consultant, checked into his room at the Shangri-La hotel yesterday and started hanging at the hotel lobby for a glimpse of Trump, Today newspaper reported.

However, all Mohan got for his trouble was a selfie with The Beast, the eight-tonne bulletproof limousine in which the US President travels, the report said. “Singapore dollar 765 (USD 573 or Rs 38,600) is a big sum, more than 2,000 in ringgit. But it is not too much to meet the President,” he said.
