US President Joe Biden, pointing to the deployment of many Indian-Americans in his administration, said on Thursday that Indian-Americans are dominating the country. Less than 50 days after assuming the presidency, Joe Biden has appointed at least 55 Indian-Americans to the top positions, including his speech at NASA, in every department of government deployment.
During a virtual conversation with NASA scientists involved in the recent Percivalence Rover’s historic landing on Mars, Joe Biden said, “Indian-Americans are dominating the country … You (Swati Mohan), my Vice President ( Kamala Harris), my speech writer (Vinay Reddy) … “
Former President Trump, seen in the old colors, said that he will not form a new party, he will bring the Republican Party back to power.
Control, operation, navigation and guidance of NASA’s MARS 2020 mission is led by Swati Mohan, an Indian-American scientist. Joe Biden, who was sworn in as America’s 46th president on January 20, has brought at least 55 Indian-Americans into administration. History has been created by appointing important posts. These do not include Vice President Kamala Harris, as she is an elected post. The list also excludes Neera Tandon, who withdrew her nomination from the position of director of the White House office on management and budget the day before.
About half of them are women, and many of them are posted in the White House. So far, the Obama-Biden administration (2009-2017) had set the record for the highest number of Indians. After that, the previous Donald Trump administration also did not lag behind, and during that time for the first time an Indian-American was given a cabinet rank and appointed to the National Security Council.
The Biden administration has appointed such a large number of Indian-Americans for the first time in the first 50 days. Just last week, Dr. Vivek Murthy has testified before the Senate Committee as the US Surgeon General, while Confirmation Hearing is also set for Vanita Gupta as Associate Attorney General in the Department of Justice.
Renowned philanthropist and founder of IndianSpora M. Rangaswamy told the news agency PTI, “It is very effective to see how many Indian-Americans have come in the field of public service … I feel proud to see my community progressing. … ”
