An Indian man has stunned many people with his utter reverence for US president, Donald Trump.
Bussa Krishna prays to a statue of trump
According to New York Post, an Indian man identified as Bussa Krishna is so convinced President Trump is his “god,” he has a life-size statue as a shrine in his garden — and offers him daily prayers.
“Instead of praying to other gods, I started praying to him,” Bussa Krishna said, calling the president “my god, Donald Trump.”
“My love for him has transformed into reverence.”
Krishna, 37, started worshiping Trump four years ago when he says he came to him in a dream, hiring 15 laborers to work with him for a month to make the 6-foot statue in his village in the southern state of Telangana.
“He is like a god to me, that is the reason I had his statue built,” he told New Delhi TV (NDTV) of his shrine showing Trump in a red tie and blue suit with his right arm raised in a wave.
“Every Friday I fast for Trump’s long life. I also carry his picture and pray to him before commencing any work,” he told the station.
Krishna, who lives alone, is now known locally as Trump Krishna, and his statue-adorned house has been dubbed Trump House.
“The villagers never objected to it but appreciated his devotion,” his friend Ramesh Reddy told NDTV.
The devotee is now hellbent on meeting Trump when he makes his first state visit to India next week, begging the government to help “make my dream come true.”
Trump’s itinerary starts on Feb. 24 in the western city of Ahmedabad, where he will visit the former home of independence hero Mahatma Gandhi and address an estimated 125,000 people at a rally. He is due in the capital the following day.
