ASHBURN, Va. (WDVM) — Senator Mark Warner made his way to Ashburn to speak with community members on how the U.S. can best support India during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Business leaders, the first Indian-American Ambassador and representatives from the Indian Embassy focused on how the U.S can improve ties with the Indian-American community. Along with Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), Sen. Warner co-chairs the bipartisan Senate India Caucus. With India dealing with increased numbers of deadly COVID-19 cases, Senator Warner reached out to the Biden Administration, urging them to help India combat the crisis.
Keerti Yendamuri, a student at Buffalo University, said, “If there’s any way that we can help India right now especially with what’s going on with COVID, and I have family friends and friends that are suffering greatly from this horrible horrible disease, but if there’s anything you can do to help it will be greatly appreciated.”
