Trump Gaon came into limelight ahead of Modi’s tour to the US. A Haryana village in Mewat region called Merodha was declared to be renamed after US President Donald Trump. However, a senior official has declared it as a fraud event. The renaming was carried out by NGO Sulabh, which said the village will be known as “Trump Sulabh Village”. Banners with the signs and photographs of Donald Trump came up in that village. But they have all been removed by the authorities. M.R. Sharma, Deputy Commissioner of Mewat said that it was a fraud event. The organisers just did to collect money from across the country. He added that it was illegal as they had no permissions for the renaming. Neither had they asked the Haryana and Union government nor the local authorities. Sharma added, “Village Marora has been already declared open defection free (ODF) by the state government. We have ordered for removal of all signage boards and banners claiming ‘Trump Sulabh Village’ and are taking appropriate action”.Monika Jain, vice president of Sulabh international said, “We were called by the district administration, after the meeting with DC M.R. Sharma. We have removed all signage boards and banners of Trump village,”. Merodha village is home to nearly 1,800 people, mostly Muslims. Sulabh claimed that it has 160 houses, while only 20 have toilets.
