iNDICA NEWS BUREAU-
Indians are all about sentiments and the Democratic candidates know exactly how to get the attention of the Indian American crowd.
Indians are currently celebrating Navratri, a country-wide festival that runs for 9 days.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on the occasion of the beginning of Navratri extended greetings to Indian-Americans and all those who are celebrating the festival in the United States.
Biden took the opportunity to relate the current state of the US, comparing it with the essence of Navratri, that is, the good winning over the evil.
Taking to Twitter, Biden said:
As the Hindu festival of Navratri begins, Jill and I send our best wishes to all those celebrating in the U.S. and around the world. May good once again triumphs over evil — and usher in new beginnings and opportunity for all.

Kamala Harris tweeted saying:
.@DouglasEmhoff and I wish our Hindu American friends and family, and all those celebrating, a very Happy Navratri! May this holiday serves as an inspiration to all of us to lift up our communities and build a more inclusive and just America.

Democrats have been trying to lure Indian-Americans ever since they nominated Kamala Harris, who is of Indian-American origin, for the vice-presidential post as the United States is set to vote on November 3.
The duo during the course of their election campaign so far have been trying to attract Indian-American voters and the latest example was to wish Indian-Americans on the commencement of 9-day long Navratri festival.
Ahead of the November 3 Presidential Elections, incumbent President Donald Trump and Democratic rival Joe Biden are set to face each other on the third and final presidential debate scheduled for October 22 after the second debate was canceled following Trump catching the coronavirus.
Meanwhile, recently, taunting his democratic rival, Trump joked that he would have to leave the country if he loses the November 3 election to Joe Biden. Trump made the remarks at a campaign event in Macon, Georgia, on Friday night, The Hill news website reported.
“I shouldn’t joke because you know what? Running against the worst candidate in the history of presidential politics puts pressure on me. Could you imagine if I lose? My whole life, what am I going to do? I’m going to say ‘I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics’. I’m not going to feel so good. “Maybe I’ll have to leave the country? I don’t know.” the President added.
Reacting to Trump’s statement, the former Vice President said in a tweet: “I’m Joe Biden and I approve this message.” The anti-Trump Republican group The Lincoln Project posted the video of Trump and captioned it “Promise?”
