Washington D.C.: USINPAC, along with other Indian American organizations, have been at it for years urging Capitol Hill to re-think India, and that work has culminated in this weekend’s historic event at which President Trump and large numbers of US lawmakers are expected to attend the “Howdy Modi” mega event in Houston, Texas.
“We are pleased to be on record advocating for PM Modi,” Vikram Chauhan, Director of USINPAC said. “We have testified at Congressional hearings calling for fairer treatment for India. Our statements are included in Committee records, and on the House floor. Together, on behalf of more than 3.2 million Indian Americans, we have sought equal opportunity, advancement and inclusion in matters across the spectrum.”
“Now, in a first of its kind event, the leaders of the oldest democracy and the largest democracy gathered with the PM, the President, Members of Congress and over 50,000 Indian Americans to send a signal to the world that US-India relations are strong – and that Indian Americans are the bridge that make the relationship stronger than it has ever been. US India relations are growing economically, politically, militarily and culturally and our relations are based on a shared value of democracy, capitalism and the rule of law,” Chauhan said.
“We thank the Trump Administration, as well as Administrations prior, for hearing us. We applaud the announcements on trade and look forward to getting a deal done in Congress, too. Whether behind the scenes or at the forefront, we will continue to work closely with our allies to make sure that the US-India partnership is one of the most defining of the 21st century,” Chauhan concluded.
