On August 15, India’s Independence Day, both US legislators will go to Red Fort, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi will speak to India. In Mumbai, Hyderabad, and New Delhi, they will meet with business, technology, government, and Bollywood elites. They will also go to Raj Ghat, a significant Mahatma Gandhi memorial.

The Congressional Caucus on India and Indian Americans is co-chaired by Khanna and Waltz. The caucus is a collaboration of lawmakers from both parties that are dedicated to improving ties between the US and India.

Representatives Shri Thanedar (MI-D), Jasmine Crockett (TX-D), Deborah Ross (NC-D), Kat Cammack (FL-R), Rich McCormick (GA-R), and Ed Case (HI-D)—all members of the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian Americans—will join Congressmen Khanna and Waltz in New Delhi.

For Khanna, who has served as California’s US representative since 2017, this is the culmination of a long journey. Amarnath Vidyalankar, his grandfather, was an Indian liberation warrior who served in India’s first parliament after serving four years in prison alongside Mahatma Gandhi.

We are honoured to lead a bicameral delegation to India in our capacity as co-chairs of the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian Americans. We will be there to talk about how to improve defence and economic connections between our two nations, which are the oldest and biggest democracies. We both think that the US-India relationship will be one that defines the 21st century. India is a crucial ally in maintaining multipolarity in Asia and preventing China from assuming hegemonic status. We must keep working to advance and strengthen our partnership based on our shared basic principles of democracy, press and assembly freedom, and human rights. This delegation is a historic chance to promote further cooperation and pursue common objectives, they claimed.

Khanna and Waltz sponsored the historic US-India Summit on the Hill earlier this year, which featured panels and speeches from government officials, academics, and Indian American leaders from across the nation.
