“I have raised, contributed to various campaigns and importantly my committed active work with the grassroots as the first vice chair of Fairfax County Republican Committee and being elected to State Central Committee of Republican Party of Virginia was recognized by the leadership for this appointment,” Ahluwalia told India Abroad.

“A political outsider who will talk straight and not mince words, speak what is in most people’s mind but are unable to express is the voice of the silent majority.” Ahluwalia expressed why Trump would be good for the Indian-American community and for the US-India relations.
