Trump party bigwigs want more PIO role in US Politics
Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley has urged fellow Indian Americans to get more involved in politics in the U.S. Haley, the first female governor of South Carolina and second Indian American governor was speaking at the annual leadership summit of the U.S.-India Strategic Partnership Forum. Haley said she was “very proud” of the Indian community in the U.S. and how they lived and worked but that it was time for them to become more involved in politics. During the virtually conducted summit, Haley said, “The only part that I see that we need more activity and involvement is, I`d like to see the Indian community get more involved in politics.” She said, while first generation immigrants had sacrificed for their children, the second generation should look back on their sacrifices but also raise the bar. She added, “Now is the time to assimilate in the political realm…whether it`s Republican or Democrat get involved. Don`t just get involved by voting but get involved by running, get involved within government …in the public sector…and let people feel that.” Speaking to a group of mostly Indians and Americans, the former South Carolina Governor said she was a proponent of strengthening the India-U.S.relationship. Haley said the U.S. would welcome India speaking louder on human rights.
