Washington, Ta. Saturday, October 17, 2020
With just a fortnight to go before the US Presidential Election, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden sent Navratri greetings on Saturday to attract Indians, the second largest group of immigrants in the United States. However, he also targeted Trump with Navratri greetings.
Democrat candidate in the US presidential election Joe Biden wished Indians a happy Navratri on Saturday and hoped for "divine victory over the wicked once again." Joe Biden tweeted on Saturday that, 'Hindu festival Navratri has started.
Jill and I greet everyone who celebrates Navratri in America and around the world. Let there be a divine victory over the Asuras once again and a new beginning and opportunities for all. '
Indo-Americans are the second largest group of immigrants in the United States. Less than one percent of Indian-Americans have registered voters in the November 3 presidential election in the United States. However, both Democrats and Republicans are making efforts to attract Indian-Americans.
The importance of Indian-American society in the American election has been highlighted by Biden's selection of Indian-American Senator Kamala Harris as his Vice Presidential candidate to attract the Indian community. Kamala Harris is the first black woman and Asian American to run for vice president from a major party like the Republic or the Democrats.
