Modi congratulates Kamala Harris on her victory as US vice president elect

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.”

California senator Kamala Harris is the first Black and Tamil woman to be elected as the Vice President of the United States. 

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.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
