Attempts to woo Indians have intensified before the presidential election in the US. Kamala Harris, the Democrats' vice-presidential candidate, praised her Indian grandparents. He tweeted- My grandparents (grandparents) were fantastic. My maternal grandfather was a supporter of India's independence. My maternal grandmother traveled around India and told women about birth control. Today I am at this stage only because of his passion and insistence on making our future better.
My grandparents were phenomenal. My grandfather was a defender of the freedom of India, while my grandmother took across India to talk to women about accessing birth control. His passion and commitment to improving our future led me to where I am today. #GrandparentsDay pic.twitter.com/PA6fmAKr0K
