"Today the Indian American community stands on the cutting edge of excellence in American eyes, they are leaders in science and medicine, education, entertainment and the arts and of course in public service," she said. Over the years the United States Congress has played a stellar and defining role in enhancing the spirit and
substance of US India Strategic partnership, she said, adding the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian-Americans is the largest country-specific caucus in the Congress.
Vowing to work for India-US relationship, Gabbard said the bilateral relationship between the two countries have never been better as it is now.
"As the world's two largest democracies, we cannot ever forget that the price of our own freedom also means standing for freedom of others. There is much work that lies ahead. We have to do more to empower women and girls. We have to have
honest dialogue about combating violence," she said.
"We have to reform the immigration laws to honor the skills and talents of citizens," Gabbard added.
