US presidential candidate Joe Biden, running mate Kamala Harris extend Navratri greetings
Washington DC: As the festival of Navratri begins all around the world, US presidential candidate Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris (vice presidential candidate) took to Twitter on Saturday to express their wishes and greetings to Hindu community who are celebrating the festival in the United States and around the world.
''As the Hindu festival of Navratri begins, Jill and I send our best wishes to all those celebrating in the U.S. and around the world. May good once again triumph over evil — and usher in new beginnings and opportunity for all,'' Joe Biden tweeted.
Following the footsteps of extending greeting was none other than the vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris, she also took to Twitter and stated,''... I wish our Hindu American friends and family, and all those celebrating, a very Happy Navratri! May this holiday serve as an inspiration to all of us to lift up our communities and build a more inclusive and just America.''
As the election in the United States draws closer, the greetings can be considered as one of the tactics to win over the Indian American population in the United States which is approximately 4 million. Out of this 4 million, about 2.5 million Indian Americans are potential voters and in the states like Texas, Michigan, Florida and Pennsylvania, they play a crucial role as whosoever wins the Indian American hearts in these states, have a solid chance of winning a ticket to Congress (US parliament).
Previously both of them had extended their wishes on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi.
