Biden was in support of India in the nuclear supply deal
Delaware businessman Palash Gupta says – Biden’s cousins live in Mumbai. So, they want to go to Mumbai. He has always had an affection for Indians. There is every hope that his attachment will continue beyond India. Because, India is a developing country. When Barack Obama was president, Biden was in India’s support in the nuclear supply deal. He was the one who got the civil nuclear agreement passed.
Paresh Patel of Delaware says- Biden lives a mile from my house. Me and my family have known him privately for 36 years. I was present with the family in the church when Biden came to burn the candles at the Delaware church after the election victory. We have family relationships.
Narendra Modi addressed the US Parliament in 2016. The then Vice President Joe Biden and House Speaker Paul Ryan were also present.
Biden is not anti-India or Modi
Paresh says – It is being said in social media that Donald Trump is the good friend of India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Biden and Vice President Elect Kamala Harris are being called anti-India and anti-Modi. It is being said that his inclination is more towards Islam. This is completely wrong. Biden said shortly before that he would further strengthen relations with India. The Democratic Party has raised its voice in favor of India many times over a year. Biden, who was the Vice President during Obama, gave a grand welcome to Modi in 2014. Paresh Patel helped Biden greatly during the election.

Biden joins Hindu festivals
Paresh says- Biden is associated with Indians. We have known him for many years because of being in the same state and city. He used to attend our programs during Garba and Deepawali. They always welcome Indians with folded hands. There is a BAPS temple here. They often come in this. As far as Kamala Harris is concerned, everyone knows about her. He has a deep connection with India. Hopefully it will be stronger.
