Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated Vice President Kamala Harris after her and Joe Biden’s election victory, saying he is “confident that the vibrant India-US ties will get even stronger with [her] support and leadership.”
Heartiest congratulations @KamalaHarris! Your success is pathbreaking, and a matter of immense pride not just for your chittis, but also for all Indian-Americans. I am confident that the vibrant India-US ties will get even stronger with your support and leadership.

In his tweet, Modi acknowledges Harris’ address to the Democratic National Convention earlier this year, where Harris expressed her gratitude to her family, including her ‘chithis’ (சித்தி) which translates to aunties in Tamil.
