Indian Americans in elected offices not reflecting their rising numbers: Harris

THE number of Indian Americans in elected offices in the US is not reflecting their growing population, the country’s vice president Kamala Harris has said. The leader appealed to the members of the minority ethnic community to contest elections more. Harris, 59, who is of both Indian and African heritage, was on Wednesday (15) speaking at “Desis Decide” — the annual summit of Indian American Impact, a Democratic Party think tank that supports and funds Indian Americans running for elected offices across the country.
