PM Modi congratulates Joe Biden, the newly elected President in a series of tweets

Today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted congratulations to Joe Biden who just took oath as the 46th President of the United States. He said India will work with the United States to ensure global peace and security and take the partnership between the two nations to greater heights.

His first tweet read, “My warmest congratulations to Joe Biden on his assumption of office as the President of United States of America. I look forward to working with him to strengthen India-US strategic partnership.”


“My best wishes for a successful term in leading USA as we stand united and resilient in addressing common challenges and advancing global peace and security,” a second tweet read.

He also said, “Committed to working with President Joe Biden to take India-US partnership to even greater heights.”

A third post from PM Modi, read,  “We have a substantial and multifaceted bilateral agenda, growing economic engagement and vibrant people to people linkages. Committed to working with President @JoeBiden to take the India-US partnership to even greater heights,” he added.

Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States and Kamala Harris took oath as first woman Vice President on Wednesday in a historic but scaled down ceremony under thousands of security personnel, who transformed the Capitol into a fortress to prevent any breach by extremists.

The inauguration was held under the watch of more than 25,000 National Guards, mainly because of the threat of more violent protests by the supporters of outgoing President Donald Trump, who became the first president to skip his successor’s inauguration since Andrew Johnson in 1869. Outgoing Vice President Mike Pence attended the ceremony.

Just before Biden’s oath, his deputy 56-year-old Harris was sworn in as 49th Vice President of the United States by Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the first Latina member of the Supreme Court, creating history as the first female, first Black and first Indian-American vice president of the world’s oldest and most powerful democracy.
