ASI yet to receive official word on Obama's Taj visit

With just three days left for United States President Barack Obama to visit Taj Mahal on Tuesday, the Archaeological Survey of India is yet to receive any formal intimation of the visit. ASI Additional Director General B R Mani confirmed that the agency hasn't received any information yet from either the ministry of culture or the ministry of external affairs, regarding Obama's visit to the Taj. 

Senior officials at ASI believe that the agency is being kept out of the loop in view of the tight-security arrangements around Obama's visit. Even ASI Director General Rakesh Tiwari has not received an invite to receive and accompany the guests on their tour. "We may get intimation later from the ministry, as there are still a few days to go,' Tiwari said.
