Indian American is going to play a very critical role in the USA Election post emergence of #KamalaHarris
There are around 11 million Asian-Americans eligible to vote in America this November elections. They comprise five percent of the total electorate.
Of this 11 million Asian-Americans 3.9* million are Indian-American voters
* some other source suggest 1.8 million
In the event of a close contest, this vote bank of influential Indian Origin could make a difference!
and #KamalaHarris is a major deception planned by the Democrats to divide the Indian-American votes.
.. this is where the game of perception starts
If you remember, @narendramodi had famously and controversially said at the Houston event last year that the next government would be Trump’s
This statement was a big departure from the unwritten rules of diplomacy - not to take sides in political contests of other nations.
The the influential Indian-Americans understands that #KamalaHarris, political positions that are not India-friendly and are far to the left on the political spectrum.
But who the F is Harris ..
The news of #KamalaHarris in the vice-presidential race has not recieved a favourable response from the influential Indian-Americans.
A majority of them expressing unfavourable opinions about her track record and stance towards India and the community
But who the F is Harris!
The #KamalaHarris is the daughter of a Chennai-born mother, Shyamala Gopalan, who arrived in the US in 1960 to pursue cancer research and a Jamaican-origin father, Donald Harris, who retired as an economics professor from the premier Stanford University.
Does it matter now?
#KamalaHarris interestingly identifies herself as a Black! with Caribbean ancestry - Jamaican-origin father, Donald Harris.
Though she acknowledges her mother as Indian, and her ties to Chennai is well documented, rarely has she referred to her Indian ancestry.
#KamalaHarris has been know as African-American candidate rather than Indian-American!
The love for the lage Indian vote bank makes her project her Indian origin
If media reports are anything to go by, Harris would want to garner Indian votes, if not Asian
It may not happen
When India revoked the autonomy of Indian-administered Kashmir, #KamalaHarris had a warning for New Delhi.
We are watching!
Now the influential Indian-Americans must watch her every move carefully.
The roots have in it ! #KamalaHarris's uncle Gopalan Balachandran told the Hindustan Times, Harris likes India. But that doesn’t mean she gives a free pass to everything that India does.
