The Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Kevin McCarthy welcomed Indian Ambassador Taranjit Singh Sandhu to the US in California and expressed his firm commitment and support for deepening the India-US partnership.
“I want to welcome you, Ambassador to the great state of California into the Indian wells valley. More importantly, I want to thank you for your service and Chandi who is also continuing to work on our relationships and the important relationship we have with India. I look forward to continuing to build the bond that we have had for years before and even strengthen our relationship for the years to come,” he said.
McCarthy welcomed India’s envoy Taranjit Singh Sandhu at a reception hosted by eminent diaspora members at Indian Wells in California and re-conveyed his support for stronger India-US ties in the days to come. The event was part of the Embassy’s sustained bipartisan outreach to elected representatives and bureaucrats at a federal and sub-national level and to the industry and Indian diaspora. Addressing the gathering, Sandhu highlighted India’s journey in the last 75 years in all spheres, including politics and economy, the ongoing digital transformation and clean energy, the evolution of the India-US partnership and how it is now being spearheaded by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Joe Biden’s vision; and the role of diaspora in fostering ties.
