Rayapati Sambasiva Rao, the MP from Guntur, went to Obama after he concluded his 35-minutes-long speech to the members of both the Houses and gifted the chain to him.

“After hearing the mesmerising speech in which he kept on praising India and its culture, I felt that I should gift him something,” he told reporters here.

“I did not have anything that time to gift to the US President except this thing,” the MP said.
