Sarah Palin coming to India next month

Thursday, February 24, 2011

WASHINGTON - Sarah Palin will visit India next month to participate in the annual conclave of a magazine, according to an aide.

Palin aide Rebecca Mansour confirmed the details on Wednesday by tweeting a link to the organization’s website, writing only ‘Gov. Palin will be travelling to India next month’.

The former Alaska Governor is scheduled to speak at the India Today Conclave in New Delhi on March 19, reports the Politico.

It is unknown whether Palin will be paid for the appearance, but the 1,850 dollars price tag to attend the two-day event makes it seem likely that she got her quote - reportedly 100,000 dollars per appearance.

Palin aides have been weighing a foreign trip for months, but had only previously disclosed that they were planning a still unannounced trip to England and Israel sometime later this year.

The conference’s choice of Palin is an odd one. She will be the only American politician attending the conference, which is stacked with Indian and Pakistani officials, business leaders, public figures and entertainers.

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will kick off the conference on Friday morning with the keynote. Palin’s speech comes Saturday night and brings the conference to a close. (ANI)
