PREVIOUS INSTANCE

  • Former US Vice President Biden’s vision statement is in sync with Democratic Congress members who have been critical of New Delhi’s positions in recent months.
  • The criticism had led to an unusual step that had raised eyebrows in Washington, when Union External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar is said to have cancelled his scheduled meeting in December last year with the influential Congressional committee on foreign affairs because it had Indian-American Congress member Pramila Jayapal, who had introduced the resolution urging India to lift all restrictions in J&K.

WHAT ELIZABETH WARREN HAD SAID

  • This had prompted then Democratic Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren to support Jayapal. “Efforts to silence @PramilaJayapal are deeply troubling. US and India have an important partnership—(it)…can only succeed if it is rooted in honest dialogue and shared respect for religious pluralism, democracy, and human rights.”
