An official update from Washington DC confirms that Congressman Tom Suozzi has joined the Congressional Caucus on India & Indian Americans, a bipartisan coalition of American lawmakers, dedicated to promoting the interests of the Indian American community and enhancing relations between India and the United States.

Suozzi thus fulfilled the pledge he recently made to the Indian American Voters Forum and Consul General Binaya Pradhan that he “would join the India Caucus and work to further strengthen the growing relationship between India and the United States.” The Consul General called Suozzi “Friend of India” and welcomed him to the India Caucus. 

After joining the Caucus, Suozzi issued a statement: “I believe that the challenges and opportunities facing the world in this century require that the United States and India join hands and lead together. I also believe that the US-India relationship will be our most defining partnership of the 21st century, which will shape the lives, dreams, and destinies of the people of our two nations. Therefore, I am proud to have joined the India Caucus.”

At the urging of Consul General Pradhan, Varinder Bhalla, chairman of the Indian American Voters Forum, formed a committee of influential Indian Americans, with a mission to increase the membership of the India Caucus. 

The Caucus Membership Drive Committee, with Varinder Bhalla as Chairman and Congressman Suozzi as Patron, includes Padmashri Dr. Dattatreyudu Nori, Padmashri Dr. Sudhir Parikh, Dr. Thomas Abraham, Dr. Sunil Mehra, Hussain Baqueri, Rajeev Bhambri, Ratna Bhalla, Gobind Munjal, Gunjan Rastogi, Sudhir Vaishnav, and Dev Vishwanath.

In a communication with Chairman Bhalla, Suozzi assured his full support for the mission of the committee and agreed to reach out to his congressional colleagues to persuade them to join the India Caucus.
