Senior Democratic Leader Steny Hoyer to join Modi-Trump rally in Houston on Sep 22

DD NEWS (FILE PIC)
Senior Democratic Congressman Steny Hoyer will join Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Donald Trump for the mega event in Houston on the 22nd of this month. Disclosing this in Washington, the Indian ambassador to the US Harsh Vardhan Shringla has said, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi too has shown interest in attending the rally. However, she will not be able to attend because of her prior family commitment. Pelosi had attended Modi's last major public address in the US in San Jose in 2015. Welcoming the decision of Hoyer to accept the invitation from organizers Texas India Forum, Shringla said this also reflects the strong bipartisan support for the relationship between two countries.

After the civil nuclear deal under the Bush Administration, India-US relationship has enjoyed a strong bipartisan support under the successive administrations. More than 50,000 Indian-Americans have registered for the event in Houston. The one-of-its kind mega event will see the participation of a large number of elected officials, including senators, congressmen, governors, judges as well as business leaders.
